Dear FEFLOW User,

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2013!

 

For the FEFLOW community, 2012 was an eventful year: With the release of FEFLOW 6.1 the transition from the Classic to the Standard user interface which had started with FEFLOW 6.0 in 2010 was completed. The current version now combines all software features in one powerful user interface.

 

Another highlight was the 3rd International FEFLOW User Conference held in Berlin-Köpenick from September 3 to 5. With more than 120 FEFLOW users from all over the world and 41 technical presentations the congress was again a very successful event.

 

We also have important news to share with you: Starting December 1, we have introduced our new licensing model which will allow users with network licenses (now called Corporate Licenses) and users with the newly introduced Subscription License to edit and run an arbitrary number of instances for the same model with only one license. With this, the need for additional licenses for parallel parameter estimation or sensitivity analysis is history. Please see all details and information on the benefits of the new license framework below.

 

Once again, we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year 2013!

 

Your FEFLOW Team

New License Model

 

With the introduction of MIKE LICENSING FLEX ACESS for the first time one general license model is applied to all DHI software products, including FEFLOW. The portfolio of Corporate Lincence, Subscription Lincence and Personal Licence provides a perfectly fitting type of license arrangement for all different kinds of software users. Read more on www.mikebydhi.com/licence.

 

For FEFLOW, the probably most significant change is a completely new feature on the Corporate Licence (former Network License) and Subscription Licence level: Each seat of a Corporate or Subscription Licence can now be used to run any number of FEFLOW instances with the same model, both for editing and simulation. This means that for parallel model runs during parameter estimation or sensitivity analysis only one license seat is required – as long as basic model properties such as node number and problem class settings are identical in all the scenarios that are run simultaneously.

 

Download the updated FEFLOW version (FEFLOW 6.105) and license manager software (NetLM 4.5) now from www.feflow.com/download.html to gain access to the new functionality immediately.

FEFLOW at the Modelowanie Przepływu Wód Podziemnych in Ustroń, Poland

DHI-WASY and DHI Poland participated in the Polish groundwater-flow modeling conference in Ustroń, Poland from November 14 to 16, 2012. The main topics discussed during the conference were contaminant transport, groundwater management, mining applications and groundwater-surface water interactions.

As a preconference event, a half-day introduction course for FEFLOW was given. The interest in the training course was very high, with 30 out of 150 conference participants attending the training.

Additionally, Sebastian Sklorz, a consultant from DHI-WASY’s water resources department gave a conference presentation on a modeling project for surface water-groundwater interaction in an open pit mine in Cottbus, Germany which received high interest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tips & Tricks – Streamlines/Pathlines Plot in Cross-Section Views

Step 1: Open a cross-section view in which you would like to show pathlines or streamlines.

Step 2: In the Spatial-Units panel, click on the node selection (Current Node Selection or a stored selection) that you would like to use as starting location for the streamlines/pathlines.

Step 3: In the Data panel, double-click on Streamlines/Pathlines > Forward/Backward.

Step 4: Start the Traces or Period-Sections plot with the respective check boxes in the View-Components panel.
