FLAC, Fast Lagrangian Analysis of Continua, is numerical modeling software for advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock, groundwater, and ground support in two dimensions. FLAC is used for analysis, testing, and design by geotechnical, civil, and mining engineers. It is designed to accommodate any kind of geotechnical engineering project that requires continuum analysis.
In addition to an introduction to FLAC, some of the topics this course will include are:
- Grid Generation
- Basic Material Models
- Boundary Conditions/Initial Conditions
- Effective Stress and Groundwater Flow Analysis
- Soil/Rock Structure Interaction
Dr. Varun is a geotechnical engineer with specialization in earthquake engineering and soil dynamics. He has experience with analytical and numerical modeling and has been involved with projects related to seismic hazard mitigation for waterfront structures, dynamic response of foundations, site response, and soil-structure interaction.
Dr. Radaković-Guzina's research has focused on the areas of structural dynamics, non-destructive characterization of concrete, damage mechanics and wave propagation. She is responsible for FORTRAN and C/C++ programming development and support for Itasca's FLAC and FLAC3D software, and she assists with the development and testing of the Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Itasca codes.
Mr. Wang is a senior geomechanics engineer with experience in mining engineering and geotechnical engineering. His research involves numerical modeling and simulation, and has involved projects related to sheet-pile walls with retained slope, mine-void detection using geophysical methods and stability of underground mines.
