The following new updates have been added to the latest FLAC3D release.

Automatic zoning between surfaces and layers. Easier creation of Constitutive Models and FISH intrinsic plug-ins.

Automatic zoning makes it even easier to construct advanced numerical models with complex topography and non-intersecting geology. Constitutive model and FISH project templates now can be installed into Microsoft Visual Studio.

The COGAN Project asks Users of Geotechnical Numerical Analysis Software to Complete an Industry Needs Survey

COGAN is a (non-profit) European project aiming to improve competency in geotechnical analysis. The project also includes NAFEMS, the International Association of the Engineering Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Community, amongst its partners. The COGAN Project is completely independent of Itasca and our support is only through increasing its awareness within the geotechnical engineering community.

Dr. Charles Fairhurst, Itasca co-founder and Professor Emeritus of the University of Minnesota, has been given the extraordinary honor of receiving the Officier de la Légion d'Honneur award, Officer in the National Order of the Legion of Honor, by decree of the President of the French Republic. This is the highest decoration awarded in France.
