FLAC3D

FLAC3D (Fast Lagrangian Analysis of Continua in 3 Dimensions) is numerical modeling software for geotechnical analyses of soil, rock, groundwater, constructs, and ground support. Such analyses include engineering design, factor of safety prediction, research and testing, and back-analysis of failure.

3DEC

3DEC is a three-dimensional numerical modeling code for advanced geotechnical analysis of soil, rock, ground water, structural support, and masonry. 3DEC simulates the response of discontinuous media (such as jointed rock or masonry bricks) that is subject to either static or dynamic loading. The numerical formulation It is based on the distinct element method (DEM) for discontinuum modeling.

MINEDW

MINEDW is a three-dimensional (3D), finite-element, groundwater flow program that was developed specifically for mining applications. MINEDW is used worldwide to design dewatering or depressurization systems, predict local and regional environmental impacts of mine dewatering, assist in the design of water-supply systems, simulate the infilling of a “pit lake” after mining ceases, and estimate pore-pressure distributions within highwalls for geotechnical design purposes. Its user friendly graphical interface with pre- and post-processing functionality provides a powerful numerical modeling environment.

KATS

KATS (Kinematic Analysis Tools for Slopes) is a tool developed by Itasca that assesses instabilities caused by day-lighting wedges and planar failures formed when different structural sets interact with the orientation of a given slope. KATS main application is for bench-berm scale analysis, which is understood as a first step in the mining slope design process for moderate and competent rock masses. It is also possible to perform a kinematic analysis in inter-ramp scale.

FLAC2D

FLAC2D is a 2D version of Itasca’s FLAC3D numerical modeling software. With a completely new user interface (UI) and new interactive tools to construct models and interpret result, FLAC2D is our easiest-to-use software. FLAC2D is the best solution to solve complex geotechnical problems for two-dimensional analyses of soil, rock, concrete, structural ground support, and groundwater flow.
