Live in-person introductory training course. This four-day course provides guidance in the use of the Itasca codes PFC2D and PFC3D to simulate the mechanical behavior of granular and solid materials.
As well as flow through joints, 3DEC 5.2 is capable of simulating fluid flow through the blocks or the matrix (i.e., between the joints). It is assumed that the blocks represent a saturated, permeable solid, such as soil or fractured rock mass.
This tutorial demonstrates how you can add isosurfaces to your 3D Itasca model plots.
A geochemical model was developed to predict future water quality of the Cove pit lake in support of site closure and regulatory permitting.
It has become common practice to create a three-dimensional (3-D) geomechanical model for the analysis of rock stability.
Elastic Properties of Fractured Rock Masses With Frictional Properties and Power Law Fracture Size Distributions
We derive the relationships that link the general elastic properties of rock masses to the geometrical properties of fracture networks, with a special emphasis to the case of frictional crack surfaces.
We extend the well-known elastic solutions for free-slipping cracks to fractures whose plane resistance is defined by an elastic fracture (shear) stiffness ks and a stick-slip Coulomb threshold.
