FLAC3D Quick Start Tutorial

This tutorial steps through the actions necessary to quickly create and solve a FLAC3D model. The focus of this tutorial is to provide you with a basic familiarity with the user interface and recommended work flow.

The modeling stages demonstrated include creating and saving a project, using building blocks to create intersecting tunnels, defining model boundaries and boundary conditions, assigning a constitutive model and initial conditions, solving the model (including tunnel excavation), and plotting the results.

Refer to the Quick Start tutorial in the help manual for a detailed write-up and under HELP -> FLAC3D Examples -> UsersGuide -> Tutorial -> QuickStart for the project and data files. Download the free FLAC3D demo to try the tutorial and learn more.
