Hands on introduction to modelling with FEFLOW: 26th October 2011


ESI, in conjunction with DHI-WASY, is pleased to announce two training days for FEFLOW users in Shrewsbury on 26th and 27th October 2011.

Hands on introduction to modelling with FEFLOW: 26th October 2011

This course gives an introduction to groundwater modelling using the simulation system FEFLOW. On the basis of an example, delegates build up a three-dimensional flow and transport model applying the most important program functions (preprocessing, simulation, results evaluation).

FEFLOW is a finite element software package for modelling fluid flow and transport of dissolved constituents and/or heat transport processes in the ground. The finite element discretisation enables the user to build complex unstructured meshes that closely match natural structures while obeying the requirements such as element size, element angles, etc.


FEFLOW applications include:

  • Groundwater protection zones
  • Salt water intrusion
  • Groundwater remediation
  • Groundwater-surface water interaction
  • Geothermal energy production
  • Mine dewatering
  • Dam seepage
  • Fracture and fissure flow and transport

The main topics covered in the course are:

  • Introduction to flow and mass transport simulation
  • Introduction to the FEFLOW Graphical User Interface
  • Setting up a 2D and 3D flow model
  • Extension to a transport model
  • Pre and post processing


Focus on FEFLOW modelling for Ground Source Energy: 27th October 2011

NEW FOR 2011, ESI in conjunction with DHI-WASY, will present a ground source energy (GSE) modelling workshop aimed at those involved in the design, specification and installation of GSE schemes. In particular, those who want to model the energy source – the most critical aspect of the scheme.

In many cases closed loop GSE systems offer the most appropriate solution. In aquifer settings, significant benefits may be obtained by accounting for the improved performance of borehole heat exchangers (BHE) in the presence of groundwater flow which will dissipate heating or cooling loads applied to the ground system. Accounting for this requires the use of 3D coupled groundwater and heat flow models of the aquifer system.

FEFLOW modelling software integrates BHEs via linear elements and allows full coupling between the GSE scheme and the hydrogeological setting. For larger schemes where the building overlies an aquifer, open loop GSE schemes may offer a significant improvement in performance.

The course will provide an introduction to the theory underlying ground source heating and cooling and geothermal schemes, and the UK regulatory context, to help delegates:

  • model realistic GSE ground loop in a realistic geological setting;
  • predict the GSE system performance;
  • design and optimise GSE schemes;
  • obtain regulatory approval for open loop schemes.

Real Case studies will illustrate FEFLOW’s new capabilities to model both open loop and vertical borehole closed loop GSE heating and cooling schemes for complex UK aquifer settings.


Who should attend the Practical FEFLOW training days?

While prior FEFLOW experience is not required, it would be beneficial to have some familiarity with hydrogeological modelling.
