Abstract:

The U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES and Brigham Young University BYU have jointly developed a user-friendly graphical interface for groundwater models, the Groundwater Modeling System GMS. The GMS BYU 1994a is a pre- and post-processing software for several different groundwater models, including a three-dimensional finite element model of density-dependent flow and transport through saturated-unsaturated porous media FEMWATER. The model was developed by G.T. George Yeh, Pennsylvania State University PSU. The model stems from two previous codes, a groundwater flow model 3DFEMWATER and a subsurface contaminant transport model 3DLEWASTE. The FEMWATER can handle all the options of the two previous models plus the option of density-driven flow and transport. The input and output structures of the model have been modified by WES to adapt the graphical interface file format. The documentation of FEMWATER users manual has been published by WES Lin and Yeh 1995. jg p.10
