FEFLOW can calculate the drawdown by time, for example, the Hydraulic head at time step 0 minus the Hydraulic head at the current time-step in the following way:

Step #01 - In a .fem file, create a Nodal expression in the User Data Panel - see Fig. 1

Step #04 - Run the .fem file after you specified the result file name and folder.  Open the .dac file just generated, and you will get to see the results of the drawdown by double-clicking on the Nodal Expression created above, in the Data panel - see Fig. 4
