The FracMan discrete fracture network (DFN) analysis approach provides a unique set of tools with potential benefits to oil, civil, mining, and environmental projects. To help the DFN approach reach this potential, Golder Associates supports research and teaching of DFN approaches through partnerships with academic and research institutions worldwide.
Golder Associates invites qualified academic and research institutions to join this effort through the FracMan Academic Licensing Program. The FracMan Academic Licensing Program provides free or reduced cost one-year FracMan software licenses to academic institutions. Licenses are provided for non-commercial teaching and research projects where license fees would otherwise present an impediment to the use of DFN technologies.
