FEFLOW 6 Officialy Released - Special Introduction Offer

DHI-WASY is proud to officially release FEFLOW 6—a complete redesign of the trusted FEFLOW groundwater software.

DHI-WASY is proud to officially release FEFLOW 6—a complete redesign of the trusted FEFLOW groundwater software. The release follows an intensive public beta-testing phase that began immediately after the first public presentation of the new user interface at the DHI-WASY FEFLOW conference last September and involved more than 200 committed testers.

Looking at its 30-year history, it is probably fair to say that FEFLOW pioneered the fully integrated graphical user interface for subsurface modeling software. Over the years, its computation capabilities have evolved to allow successful application to an increasing variety of problems. This is true in terms of physical processes as well as concerning the spatial and temporal scales, now spanning a range from millimeters to several hundred kilometers, and from fractions of a second to thousands of years, respectively.

Today, the design of FEFLOW 6 strictly separates the numerical code (simulation kernel) from accompanying client code such as the graphical user interface. The FEFLOW kernel interfaces are designed for speed and effectiveness to handle very large models comfortably and with excellent performance. The encapsulation of the data transfer between clients and kernel is a key prerequisite so that in a future version client applications and the FEFLOW kernel may run on different computers. The raw simulator functionality of the new FEFLOW kernel not only allows specialized client applications for customers with limited user interaction, but also greatly benefits the integration of FEFLOW into combined and complex modeling packages. Public interfaces such as OpenMI can be easily implemented to complement the optimized internal FEFLOW interfaces.

Utilizing the Qt toolkit and OpenGL graphics technology, the FEFLOW 6 user interface represents a break with the FEFLOW appearance that had become familiar to many users over the years. To ensure maximum flexibility and efficiency, the new design keeps all functionality accessible whenever possible—the user interface remains interactive even during simulation. Multiple automatically updating and interactive views are available for mesh design, model editing, and simulation monitoring. As is predecessor versions, FEFLOW 6 provides extensive GIS support, now integrated with powerful visualization capabilities including custom 2D and 3D animations.
