This hands-on, virtual training course is 16 hours total, spread over four days in a 1.5-week period, and covers the analysis of embankment dams using FLAC.
This tutorial will show how to create and manipulate zone plot items for showing model attributes and results.
This FLAC 8.1 tutorial demonstrates how to conduct a steady-state seepage analysis to calculate the pore water pressures in the embankment due to the reservoir.
A tutorial showing how to create an unstructured mesh in FLAC3D 7.0 using the extruder pane.
Mesh quality is crucial for the stability, accuracy, and fast convergence of numerical simulations. However, given the geometrical complexity of some models and the tools available for mesh creation, it is often necessary to accept meshes that deviate significantly from the known ideal shape.
Numerical models are now used routinely to predict ground-water inflows to both surface and underground mines and to help design dewatering systems.
Hydraulic testing using wireline deployed water-inflated packers is becoming a common practice for groundwater characterization at mining sites.
