Mr. Wang, FLAC Product Manager, 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.
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.
