AnAqSim Instructional Series: Exercise Set 9

Multiple Layers

The Set 9 Exercise Package introduces an important new area of AnAqSim’s capabilities: development of multiple layer groundwater flow models. Exercises included in Exercise Set 9 demonstrate multi-layer model construction for the simulation of vertical aquifer flow, flow to wells with multiple screened intervals, and accurate representation of 3-D flow in stream-lake confluence areas.

Topics covered in the Set 9 Exercise Package include:

  • Creating multiple-layer models
  • Multiple layer model with pumping well
  • Multiple layer model with river line element
  • Multiple layer model with river domain
  • Stream joining a lake domain boundary
  • Stream joining a lake with 3-D flow and discharge
  • Flow patterns near a stream joining a multi-layer lake feature

The Set 9 Exercise Package contains instructional lessons, any necessary modeling input files, basemaps, etc; and a set of step-by-step completed AnAqSim files that you can load at any point if you want to check one of the exercise steps – everything you need to continue learning groundwater modeling using AnAqSim!
