Presenter: J. S. Templeton


Jack Templeton is a graduate of Drexel (BSME, MS in Applied Mechanics) and Tulane (Dr. of Engineering) Universities.  He is currently President of SAGE USA, Inc. and has served with SAGE affiliate companies for nearly 25 years, following over 25 years in large corporation technical and leadership positions. 
Dr. Templeton has been engaged in finite element analysis since his space program experience of the 1960's and has worked in soil mechanics research and applications since the 1970’s.  He led the Offshore Soil Mechanics and Offshore Site Evaluation groups at Exxon Production Research Company in the 1980’s when EPR originally sponsored the development of finite element soil mechanics capability in the ABAQUS program.  In the 1990’s, he became the first independent consultant to offer this capability to the offshore industry.  Since that time he has specialized primarily in finite element solution of offshore geotechnical and geophysical problems.

Abstract


This presentation will describe, at a high level, what finite element analysis is, how it is related to geophysical and geotechnical site investigation and how it is useful for solution of problems in geophysics and geotechnics.  Input requirements of the finite element analysis process will be described, including the use of data from both geophysical and geotechnical site investigations to fill these requirements.  Results will be shown from finite element solutions for example offshore problems.
