Ms. Zetterlund is Itasca’s Training and Education Coordinator. Judy coordinates Itasca Consulting Group trainings; introductory trainings each spring, more focused trainings in the fall, and customized trainings upon request.
FLAC3D TMis a numerical modeling code for advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock, and structural support in three dimensions. FLAC3D is used in analysis, testing, and design by geotechnical, civil, and mining engineers.
This FLAC3D V7.0 training course accommodates new and experienced users. It will be based on examples that attendees will develop and run by themselves to better grasp the mechanics of using FLAC3D V7.0, the key underlying calculation principles and the spectrum of available features. Attendees are encouraged to bring one of their specific cases that may be discussed.
The upcoming 70th annual Highway Geology Symposium will be held in Portland, Oregon, October 21st through October 24th, 2019.
Mr. DeGagné is a geomechanics engineer with experience in rock mechanics, including slurry and paste backfill, and sublevel caving. He has developed an alternative binder using recycled glass for use in backfill and has developed numerical models using PFC3D and the parallel-processing option to simulate the flow of ore and waste draw in a sublevel cave mine.
