Short Course

APPLICATION OF THE ANALYTIC ELEMENT METHOD TO THE MODELING OF REGIONAL GROUNDWATER FLOW

Professor of Civil Engineering

Presentation

Meeting the demands of the European Water Framework Directive may require performing quick, yet precise, models of groundwater flow and transport. The analytic element method is ideally suited for such an objective. It is a numerical method based on the superposition of closed-form analytical expressions. As such, it is easy to use and highly accurate.

The objective of this short course is to explain the application of the analytic element method to the modeling of groundwater flow. The course will cover the basic principles of the method, along with its application to a variety of problems.

The attendees will receive a cd with the educational version of the computer program SLAEM (Single Layer Analytic Element Model) and a cd with pdf files that contain the relevant portions of the textbook Groundwater Mechanics, Prentice Hall, 1989 written by the instructor of this course.

Venue

Dates: 15, 16 and 17 November 2005.

Timetable: 9.30 - 13.30 and 15 - 18 hrs.

The course will be held at

Building A-2, Room S110, Campus North UPC

C/ Gran Capitan, s/n,

08034 Barcelona, Spain

Registration

Inscription cost is 300 euros.

It includes teaching materials, including informatic codes. Given that the number of open places is limited, an early on-line inscription is recommended:
