About Tutorials

Tutorials are the optimal starting point for new users who want to work with the program right away. They present step-by-step instructions for working through the problems illustrated, and are listed above in the recommended order of engagement.

Example Applications



About Example Applications

The example applications are problems that have been solved using FLAC2D and FLAC3D, demonstrating the various classes of problems to which the programs may be applied.

For a comprehensive list of all FLAC examples that appear in this documentation, refer to FLAC Examples Index.

The problems in this group represent only a sample of potential applications for FLAC. The examples presented to users are updated on a regular basis. Users are invited to submit their own examples for inclusion, or to communicate or request any type of problem that they would like to see included here.

Verification Problems



About Verification Problems

The verification problems are tests in which the FLAC solution is compared directly to an analytical (i.e., closed-form) solution. Verification problems for the optional features – thermal analysis, creep material models and dynamic analysis – and for structural elements are found in the sections of the documentation covering those topics.
