Free introductory tutorials. Can be run with the free AnAqSimEDU version of AnAqSim. These tutorials provide an overview of the domain analytic element method, AnAqSim features and techniques, comparison checks between AnAqSim and MODFLOW results, and tips on AnAqSim model building. You should start here!!
The Set 2 Exercise package builds upon concepts covered in the free introductory package by providing instruction on the addition of heterogeneities, surface water features, linear barriers, and trenches, all of which are key to evaluating and analyzing more complex hydrologic systems.
The Set 3 Exercise Package provides instruction and hands on exercises that cover techniques necessary to define model domains, as well as sources and sinks. Users will learn how to define multiple aquifer zones using inter-domain boundaries, add common surface water features, and define areas of model recharge and evapotranspiration.
The Set 4 Exercise package covers the use of multiple overlying domains to construct multi-layer models and represent heterogeneities. Multiple layer models allow for the simulation of 3-D aquifer flow, partially-penetrating hydraulic features, multi-screened production wells, and groundwater-surface water interaction models.
Recommended for more advanced users, The Set 5 Exercise Package provides instruction on more complex modeling concepts, including model calibration, creating transient groundwater flow models, and how to use third-type boundary conditions to represent adjoined model domains.
The Set 6 Exercise Package explores the use of basemaps to facilitate AnAqSim model building and enhance graphical output. Exercises provide step by step instructions on how to get the most of AnAqSim’s View Manager, digitize model features, overlay 2D model results, and display and analyze depictions of AnAqSim groundwater flow pathlines.
The Set 7 Exercise Package provides step by step instructions on how to use QGIS in conjunction with AnAqSim to create basemaps, digitize model features, overlay 2D model results, display and analyze 3D depictions of AnAqSim model pathlines, and create a river elevation data set by digitizing points on a QGIS basemap.
The Set 8 Exercise Package provides detailed, easy-to-follow instruction on how to effectively utilize the wide range of features and tools in the AnAqSim software, including working with data entry grids, model building with basemaps, exploring and interpreting model results with built-in analysis tools, and producing and exporting model data and high-quality model output graphics.
The Set 9 Exercise Package focuses on the fresh-salt water interface modeling capabilities of AnAqSim including instruction on basic interface hydraulics concepts, and exercises for single-layer and multi-layer aquifer systems that explore lateral saltwater intrusion, interface upconing, the effect of different coastal boundary conditions, and various methods for displaying interface model output.
The flexAEM software tools package consists of a series of Microsoft Excel spreadsheet utilities designed to assist users in rapid AEM model development. These tools allow users to generate coordinates for customized model boundaries, as well as precise geometric shapes, including rectangles, rounded rectangles and ellipses.
The flexAEM Remediation Calculator Toolkit includes a set of 12 calculators that can be used to design and evaluate a wide range of groundwater remediation systems using site specific aquifer properties and design parameters.
