Mr. Tonsberg is a recent graduate of the Colorado School of Mines Master’s program in Hydrology. His research involved the development of an analytical contaminant transport model within Excel that was evaluated against field data and robust numerical models.
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.
The Fifth International Itasca Symposium will be held at the University of Vienna (Austria). The Symposium will features the application of Itasca software for solving engineering and scientific challenges in geomechanics, hydrogeology, microseismicity, and more.
Mr. Swanson is a hydrogeologist with 20 years of experience in applied mining hydrogeology, geochemistry, and field program management. He specializes in complex data acquisition programs and drilling projects, leading investigations for mining clients in over 20 countries.
