This course is an introduction to modeling geotechnical problems using commercially available geotechnical programs with an emphasis on FLAC. Different geotechnical programs and numerical methods will be discussed and compared with each other. Principals of numerical modeling will be described. The modeling procedure for several practical geotechnical examples (including seismic loading) will be demonstrated using FLAC. The material is useful for students and professionals in different fields including civil, geotechnical, mining, petroleum, and geology engineering. Attendees will be awarded 5 PDH Credits for a single day registration, or a total of 10 PDH Credits for full enrollment.
TOPICS COVERED IN THE WORKSHOP INCLUDE:
- Introduction to Computational Geotechnics
- Commercial Geotechnical Programs
- Theoretical Considerations
- Numerical Modeling in FLAC
