Dear FEFLOW user,

First of all, WASY is proud to announce the

Release of FEFLOW 5.2.

The new version contains numerous new features, including

  • Reactive multi-species mass transport,
  • FEFLOW Explorer for 3D visualization, animation, and video export
  • Transient particle tracking,
  • Much more!

For a full overview of the new capabilities, see www.feflow.info.

All users with a valid maintenance contract will receive their update package (DVD and updated documentation) and new keycode automatically, either from WASY or from their FEFLOW distributor.

Modelling of Mass and Energy Transport in Porous Media
with Practical Applications

From 19th through 23th of September 2005 the first summerschool on the topic 'Modelling of Mass and Energy Transport in Porous Media with Practical Applications' will take place at the Freie Universität Berlin.

The summerschool is organized by WASY, GFZ Potsdam and Freie Universität Berlin.

This course aims to bring together geosciences and mathematics in teaching and learning as well as in theory and practical application. In a world of increasing specialization and diverging scientific languages the ability to communicate with scientists and engineers of other disciplines becomes a major personal benefit. The course will be structured in two sections:

  • Section 1: [Day 1 through 3] concerns the geological/physical background of equations, the mathematics to solve them, and selected practical examples.
  • Section 2: [Day 4 and 5] will be a guided seminar where the participants work autonomously in small groups on practically relevant problems. Ideally, each group will consist of 3 participants representing geosciences, mathematics and practice. The results of the different projects will be presented by the participants at the end of the summerschool.

The FEFLOW® simulation system will be introduced and used for the computational exercises of both sections.
