New Webinar: Create hydrogeological conceptual models and export them to FEFLOW
With help of DHI’s MSc Camilo Suescún, we will create a 3D hydrogeologogical conceptual model of a complex region, export it and use it in FEFLOW to evaluate groundwater flow.
View our last webinar again.
After attending this webinar you will be able to Export models directly to FEFLOW with prismatic meshes that follow, not only Geological units but also rivers and wells. With the help of Geomodelr and FEFLOW, you will have powerful tools to comprehend groundwater flow in your projects.
Unlike MODFLOW, FEFLOW uses finite elements and allows you to create prismatic meshes. This helps us to adjust our models to rivers and wells, that not only need to be followed completely by elements, and it allows to create prismatic meshes to give correct results when doing simulations.
With Geomodelr, generating models of complex geologies is very simple because it creates them from cross sections with very simple tools and a very simple methodology. FEFLOW is one of the most used tools for the simulation of groundwater flow and is developed and sold by DHI. The interface from Geomodelr to FEFLOW also uses our layer adjustment algorithms that follow in the most precise way the different geological units of the model.
This time our guest is Luis Camilo Suescún, Civil Engineer, and Msc in Hydraulic Resources. He’s a DHI group consultant and a FEFLOW expert with a lot of experience in modeling groundwater flow. With us will also be also Ricardo Serrano, Computer engineer, Computational mechanics expert and MSc in Engineering. He’s also, Geomodelr’s CEO.

About Luis Camilo Suescún:
Civil Engineer, Msc in Hydraulic Resources of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. During his experience as hydrogeologist he has advised public and private entities in the creation of hydrogeological conceptual studies, numerical models (flow and transport) and geological and geophysical studies for prospection and management of groundwater, oil & gas, mining and subterranean infrastructure. As an academic, he has participated as speaker in different international and national scenarios and he has been awarded by the International Association of Hydrogeologists and Elite Consulting SAC. His MSc thesis was awarded for the development and coupling of computational tools for inverse modeling to quantify infiltration flow in tunnels. Currently, he’s part of DHI group, as hydrogeologist modeler for the development of mining projects and large-scale underground works in Latin America. He gives technical support in the Latin-American region and he’s part of the staff of instructors qualified to teach modeling courses with FEFLOW tools from The DHI Academy. Currently, he’s part of the directors board of the Colombian Association of Hydrogeologists and he’s the current president of the Colombian Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists and member of NGWA, ECHN and GWR.
About Ricardo Serrano:
Ricardo is a developer and modeler with 10 years of experience in physical, geometrical and geological modeling. He has created computer models for everything from a ceramic tile to earthquakes covering tens of kilometers. He has authored and co-authored papers in computer simulations and computational geometry and topology. Ricardo started Geomodelr to give geologists a tool to put on a computer what they usually do on paper and to make their geology 3D without a huge effort. Geomodelr now has more than 1900 users around the world and is being used in more than 120 universities to teach structural geology and to model everything from earthquakes to mineral deposits. Right now, Geomodelr’s focus is Hydrogeology, and it allows geologists to create and to export 3D conceptual hydrogeological models to the main groundwater flow simulation platforms.
