Objectives of the training:

•Understand the FLAC2D/ FLAC3D numerical approach and the types ofproblems it can solve
•Know how to manipulate the FLAC2D/ FLAC3D user interface to access andinterpret results
•Follow the recommended solution procedure to simulate a simple case


IMAT IMMERSIVE TRAINING
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Jun 5, 2024 - Jun 6, 2024

ITASCA is launching IMAT (Itasca's Mining Analysis Toolbox) our groundbreaking software tailored exclusively for underground and open pit mining applications at the ITASCA Symposium in Toronto, June 2024.


Software Tutorials

FLAC3D 7 Zone Plotting Tutorial

This tutorial will show how to create and manipulate zone plot items for showing model attributes and results.

FLAC3D 7.0 Structured Mesh Tutorial

A tutorial showing how to create a structured mesh in FLAC3D 7.0 using the extruder pane.

FLAC3D 7 0 Octree Mesh Tutorial

In this example, a pile of earth is modeled overlying undulating ground. This tutorial demonstrates how a FLAC3D model mesh can be easily created using DXF geometries and the ZONE DENSIFY command. How to differentiate parts of the model into separate GROUPs using DXF geometries and the GEOMETRY-SPACE range logic is also demonstrated.

Technical Papers

The McArthur River mine in northern Saskatchewan is the largest single producer of uranium in the world.

A DFN–DEM Multi‑scale Modeling Approach for Simulating Tunnel Excavation Response in Jointed Rock Masses

Based on the concept of the representative elementary volume (REV) and the synthetic rock mass (SRM) modeling technique, a DFN–DEM multi-scale modeling approach is proposed for modeling excavation responses in jointed rock masses. Based on the DFN models of various scales, equivalent rock mass properties are obtained using 3DEC SRM models. A tunnel excavation simulation using data from the Äspö TAS08 tunnel is conducted to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed multi-scale modeling approach.
