Pedro Velasco ha trabajado en un gran número de proyectos civiles (túneles en carreteras, autopistas e infraestructuras para el aislamiento de residuos; and waste-isolation infrastructures; diseño de fosas y taludes y diseño de soportes) y de minería (diseño de trabajos subterráneos, subsidencia) . Es experto en el uso de los códigos FLAC y UDEC de Itasca.
FLAC3D TMis a numerical modeling code for advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock, and structural support in three dimensions. FLAC3D is used in analysis, testing, and design by geotechnical, civil, and mining engineers.
This FLAC3D V7.0 training course accommodates new and experienced users. It will be based on examples that attendees will develop and run by themselves to better grasp the mechanics of using FLAC3D V7.0, the key underlying calculation principles and the spectrum of available features. Attendees are encouraged to bring one of their specific cases that may be discussed.

Montse Senis es experta en la creación de modelos con FLAC3D y ha trabajado en numerosos proyectos que incluyen modelización en 3D, principalmente en túneles.
FLAC3D (Fast Lagrangian Analysis of Continua
in 3 Dimensions) is numerical modeling software for geotechnical
analyses of soil, rock, groundwater, constructs, and ground support.
Such analyses include engineering design, factor of safety prediction,
research and testing, and back-analysis of failure.
FLAC3D utilizes an explicit
finite volume formulation that captures the complex behaviors of models
that consist of several stages, show large displacements and strains,
exhibit non-linear material behavior, or are unstable (including cases
of yield/failure over large areas, or total collapse).
Perpetual, monthly lease, and annual lease licenses are available as
either a local USB-key (which is portable) or a multiple-seat network
USB-key. Academic institutions qualify for special pricing discounts.
Continuum analysis can be applied to engineering design of civil, mining, and geotechnical excavations (e.g., slopes, tunnels, caverns, stopes, etc.) and constructs (dams, foundations, footings, walls, etc.) in soil, intact rock, and rock masses (i.e., heavily jointed rock). Using interfaces, FLAC3D can also simulate discontinuities such as faults, joints, bedding planes, and engineered boundaries along constructs. Consider 3DEC for simulations in blocky ground or if there are many more than 20 discrete faults, joints, or bedding planes in your numerical model.
Options in FLAC3D are sold separately from the general license, allowing users to extend the program’s capabilities as meets their own analysis needs.
Dynamic Analysis: Option for analyzing earthquakes, seismicity, and mine rockbursts, for example.
Thermal Analysis: Option for analyzing both conduction and advection in materials for nuclear waste disposal and cement hydration, for example.
Creep Analysis: Option for analyzing time-dependent material behavior, for excavations in salt or potash, for example.
C++ Plug-in: An option for building powerful custom functions and constitutive models using C++ scripting. Itasca maintains a library of user-defined constitutive models online.
