Software Tutorials

FLAC3D 7.0 Geometry Mesh Tutorial

This tutorial demonstrates how to generate a 3D volume mesh from surface geometry imported from DXF or STL files. Both hexahedral-dominant and tetrahedral meshes can be generated automatically using the "zone generate from-geometry ..." command in FLAC3D 7. The results of various keywords are shown.

FLAC3D 7.0 Geometry Painting Tutorial

This tutorial will show how to paint zone data onto an imported geometric surface in FLAC3D.

Using Python in FLAC3D 6

The Python programming language is embedded inside FLAC3D 6 and extended to allow FLAC3D models to be manipulated from Python programs. This webinar recording provides a brief introduction to Python scripting and includes many examples of using Python with FLAC3D.

Technical Papers

Formulation and Application of a Constitutive Model for Multijointed Material to Rock Mass Engineering

This paper presents the formulation of a constitutive model to simulate the behavior of foliated rock mass. The 3D elastoplastic constitutive model, called Comba, accounts for the presence of arbitrary orientations of weakness in a nonisotropic elastoplastic matrix.

Quantifying the Effect of Localized Depressurization on a Deep Underground Ore Body at the Mcarthur River Mine through Cross Hole Hydraulic Testing and Groundwater Modeling

The McArthur River mine in northern Saskatchewan is the largest single producer of uranium in the world.

Numerical Models as Important Component of EGS Design and Operation

Calibration of geomechanics models using microseismic data is key to creating reliable predictive tools. This presentation reviews the geomechanical model used for: stress characterization, microseismic modeling to assess the risk associated with faults activation and induced seismicity, and evaluation of designs and operational strategies. Both hydraulic fracturing and hydro-shearing of discrete fracture network were important components of stimulation of EGS and zonal isolation can play a key role in effective stimulation of an EGS along the entire length of the horizontal well.
