As part of the reinforcement work of the Joannes Couvert quay in the Port of Le Havre, soil reinforcement by rigid inclusions (RI) is planned to be used in the rear of the future quay structure, to allow the passage of heavy cranes during the operational phase.
This training is an introduction to continuous modeling with FLAC2D and FLAC3D. At the end of the course, participants will master the graphical interface, documentation and the main modeling steps. Concepts are illustrated using a tunnel excavation example, from building the model geometry to results analysis. This introductory course provides the foundation for more advanced use of the software, which can be covered in more specific training modules.
Karina has more than 16 years of experience in rock mechanics engineering, and she contributed her professional expertise to the mining industry in open pit and underground excavations, as well as in academia at the University of Queensland. Karina has experience in hard and soft rock, operations and projects, specifically metalliferous mining with AngloGold Ashanti in Brazil (sublevel stoping, cut-and-fill, room-and-pillar, and open pit) and South Africa (longwall ultra-deep mines) and coal with Vale in Australia (longwall and open cut). She contributed to the geotechnical field and performed numerical modelling based on mine stability, design and optimisation of layouts, assisting the mine planning on technical considerations and related geotechnical risk appraisals. Karina’s experience in research includes investigation of coal properties, fracture stimulation for coal seam gas production, breakage and characterisation of various ores and fabricated rocks to improve knowledge in mineral processing. Karina has a special interest in mineralogy influencing rock breakage, numerical modelling, stability analysis of excavations, and evaluation of ground support design
