Groundwater modelling for infrastructure and geotechnical projects

Get the most out of FEFLOW wherever you are in the world!

FEFLOW is widely recognised as one of the most comprehensive software packages for subsurface flow and transport simulation. It can be applied in water management, mining water, saltwater intrusion, geothermal energy, and variably saturated media.

This five-module, instructor-led course will teach you how to perform numerical groundwater simulations at construction sites – from the comfort of your home or office!

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training!

Do you work with groundwater simulations? Do you have basic groundwater systems knowledge? Are you prepared to allocate a minimum of two hours of self-study for each module?

If so, this course is for you! Learn FEFLOW features to model groundwater and unsaturated-flow processes within infrastructure and geotechnical engineering.

Or, if you haven’t, follow the self-paced course, “Getting started with groundwater modelling using FEFLOW”.

Plus, you’ll get bonus course material after each module so you can self-study until you master the software!
