At this step, you can create finite difference grids for MODFLOW, unstructured grids for MODFLOWUSG, or finite element meshes for a FEFLOW run.
Quick Overview
Instructions 

Prerequisites: 

Result: 
A numerical grid or mesh is created. 
Next Steps: 
Convert the conceptual model to any one of the following: 
Once you have created your conceptual model you can discretize your model using either the finite difference method, finite volume (Control Volume Finite Difference, CVFD) or the finite element method. The finite difference method involves fitting your conceptual model to one or more finite difference grids. The CVFD method (used in MODFLOWUSG), allows you to conform the grid to your wells and boundary conditions. For MODFLOWbased numerical models, after conversion, the resulting numerical model can be viewed/edited and then simulated in the VMOD Flex environment. The finite element method involves fitting your conceptual model to a finite element mesh. Once translated, a FEFLOW ASCII .FEM file is created (and saved on the hard disk), which can then be opened and simulated using FEFLOW. Note: a license of FEFLOW v.5.4 or above is required to open FEFLOW .FEM files generated from VMOD Flex.
