Session topics

Explore the latest advancements and case studies in geothermal applications within FEFLOW, focusing on harnessing the Earth’s heat for sustainable energy solutions. Topics may include the modelling of shallow geothermal systems (open- and closed-loops), deep geothermal reservoirs and innovative approaches to enhance geothermal energy production. Presentations about the use of unconventional geothermal systems and their modelling are very welcome.

Delve into the methodologies and tools for quantifying uncertainties in the context of subsurface modelling. Presentations may cover uncertainty analysis and sensitivity studies using FEFLOW in combination of packages such as PEST, PEST++ or analogues. Robust Modeling practices to provide insights into managing and mitigating uncertainties in groundwater and environmental simulations.

Uncover the role of geostatistical simulations to address the spatial variability and uncertainty of groundwater models. The use of data-driven modelling and machine learning in combination with FEFLOW. Abstracts can discuss geostatistical methods, artificial intelligence, data-driven modelling, and their integration with FEFLOW model for accurate and reliable predictions in hydrogeological studies.

Focus on the sustainable management and utilization of groundwater resources using FEFLOW. Presentations may cover groundwater modelling for resource assessment, capture well analysis, contaminant hydrogeology, management aquifer recharge, coupled surface water and groundwater, optimization strategies, and effective decision-making tools for ensuring the responsible use and protection of groundwater.

Explore the intersection of FEFLOW simulations and mining activities, addressing challenges and opportunities in groundwater management within mining environments. Abstracts can cover mine dewatering, Lithium mining, well position at mine sites, pore-pressure analysis, hydro-mechanical analysis, tailing analysis and the integration of FEFLOW for optimizing water resource management in mining operations (e.g., digital twins).

Highlight the importance of 3D meshing in FEFLOW simulations, discussing advancements, techniques, and best practices in creating high-quality meshes for accurate representation of subsurface systems. Presentations may cover workflows about the integration of 3D geological models with FEFLOW, impact of mesh discretization on simulation results, integration of conceptual modelling and more.
