Module 1: Numerical and Constitutive Modeling and FISH

Day 2

Module 2: Advanced Constitutive Modeling

Day 3

Module 3: Two-Dimensional Analyses

Day 4

Module 4: Seismic Analyses of Embankment Dams


  • Each day will be split into short presentations and longer analysis tutorials using FLAC.
  • During the 1.5-week training period, Instructor will be available for followup questions regarding FLAC and numerical modeling.
  • As well, supporting videos and additional exercises will be made available during the training period to further support participants' learning.
