Quick Dewatering System Design using Analytic Element Modeling
If you want quickly to learn dewatering system design and expand your engineering skils this is the course for you!
Dewatering system design for various purposes sometimes makes confusions for engineers - should I use analytic or numeric method? Every method has its advantages and disadvantages and in this short course I am going to introduce what I think is the quickest and cost effective way to design dewatering systems - usinig AquiferWin32 and Analytic Element Modeling Technique.
There are going to be several videos and the whole course will last about 1 hour (you will need more to master it). You are also getting a free book with close to 400 pages on Analytic Element Modeling for deeper dive into this topic.
After this course you are going to be able to do your own calculations with AquiferWin ver.5 in which you are going to change the location of wells or trenches, optimize their pumping rates and finally give optimized solution for dewatering system.
Of course, you can ask as many questions as you want on the Forum of this course.
B.Sc in hydrogeology, geology, environmental engineering, civil engineering.
Average 3 - 4 hours in a week if you want to finish this course in a week. We encourage you to spend time with the course each week after it to establish full understanding of course material. Your focused attention will pay off in the end!

Dragan Kaludjerovic received his BSc, MSc an PhD at Belgrade University and he is currently at online specialization at The Johns Hopkins University - Environmental Engineering.
In his early career, 1998, Dr. Kaludjerovic focused his research on more complicated numerical models such as unsaturated zone modeling and transport modeling with MT3DMS. Feedback from his presentation at the MODFLOW 98 Conference influenced him to continue to work on mathematical models and their application to hydrogeology engineering which resulted in his MSc defense.
Later, in 2000, he was invited to work at Waterloo Hydrogeologic Inc, (WHI), a world leader at that time in groundwater model software development and consulting. During his time at WHI, he was introduced to innovative modeling techniques, including PEST for parameter estimation and reactive transport modeling with RT3D.
During the next several years, Dr. Kaludjerovic worked on numerous projects including the design of a large groundwater source with 1000 l/s in Macedonia.
In 2005, Dr. Kaludjerovic started work on his PhD thesis which was completed in 2008 and titled "Natural Attenuation of Contamination in Groundwater". The scope of this thesis focused on applications of the RT3D (Reactive Transport) model with multiple electron acceptors to a field case (aquifer contaminated with xylene).
After his PhD thesis, Dr Kaludjerovic continue to conduct research in the area of aerobic and anaerobic bioremediation with emphasis on emulsified oil projects and gas infusion technologies. During his carrier Dr Kaludjerovic published more then 25 papers which can be found below or on his Linkedin page.
In last several years, Dr Kaludjerovic is working with high resolution satellite images (both optical and radar satellites) and its application in environmental science and modeling.

- Bob Marley - Senior Hydrogeologist at EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC
I have known Dragan for many years. I am most impressed with his dedication to hard work, and the breadth of his knowledge on environmental data acquisition and processing, software, and modelling.
- John Doherty Owner, Watermark Numerical Computing, Australia
He is always available for questions and truly goes above and beyond in his training classes. I have gained a lot of knowledge over a short period of time working with Dragan and would highly recommend his services to others.”
- Thomas Ballard, PG, CHG, Consulting Hydrogeologist, USA
I took multiple training courses with Dragan. I learned a great deal with him during each of the courses. He is an excellent teacher willing to help out in any way possible.
- Mark Sherrill, Environmental Scientist at Short Elliott Hendricson, USA
"I recently completed a course in Remote Sensing and QGIS with Dragan. He was very knowledgeable and guided me through the theory and background and also the implementation of remote sensing. He was very personable and happy to answer all my questions. I appreciate having him as a reference and would recommend him to anyone interested in this topic."
