FEFLOW

Advanced groundwater modelling

This two-day, hands-on course aims at providing you with the skills for advanced modelling topics. Depending on the needs of the group of participants, a selection of the below topics is offered. FEFLOW is widely recognised as a comprehensive software package for subsurface flow and transport simulation.

FEFLOW unique mesh capabilities (structured and unstructured) allows you the highest degree of flexibility in to account in detail from the most simple to complex geometrical configurations. The software is used by leading research institutes, universities, consulting firms and government organisations all over the world.

FEFLOW’s scope of application ranges from simple local scale to complex large scale modelling. Application areas include water management, mine water, saltwater intrusion, geothermal energy, and variably saturated media.

COURSE TOPICS

  • Unsaturated-flow modelling
  • Density-dependent flow modelling
  • Heat-transport modelling, geothermal energy systems, closed/open systems
  • Fractures and discrete feature elements
  • Multi-component transport and chemical reactions
  • Introduction to IFM programming
  • Introduction to automatic model calibration with FePEST
  • Hands-on exercises

TARGET GROUP AND PREREQUISITES

Groundwater professionals working in consulting companies, public authorities, university and research institutions.

FEFLOW During this free 45 minute webinar including a Q&A session, we will introduce you to how FEFLOW is supported by a sophisticated mesh generation algorithm and interfaces to a number of geological modelling frameworks. Groundwater models in demanding geological settings can now be set up more easily than ever before. The new meshing options are especially helpful for the precise mapping of inclined boreholes, inclined faults or any underground structures 18:00 UTC (2:00 pm EST) Online Register
