Hydrogeological Modeling with FEFLOW (Module II – Practical Applications)

This online course provides an introduction to groundwater modeling with FEFLOW software. Participants will have a review of the theory of flow and transport of contaminants in saturated media, as well as basic concepts to create three-dimensional models, run simulations and analyze scenarios using the FEFLOW software. As well as the acquired knowledge will be exercised in practice with modeling exercises at FEFLOW aimed at mining applications.
