FEMWATER

Three-Dimensional Finite Element Model of Water Flow Through Saturated-Unsaturated Media (3DFEMWATER)

Three-Dimensional Finite Element Model of Water Flow Through Saturated-Unsaturated Media (3DFEMWATER) FEMWATER is a groundwater model that can be used to model groundwater flow and contaminant transport in three dimensional porous media with varying levels of saturation and multiple types and configuations of contaminant sinks and sources. It can be used in conjuction with the Three-Dimensional Lagrangian-Eulerian Finite Element Model of Waste Transport Through Saturated-Unsaturated Media (3DLEWASTE), and can be used as the groundwater component of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Groundwater Modeling System (GMS).
