Particle tracking for MODFLOW-USG: A demonstration of mod-PATH3DU runs using Visual MODFLOW Flex

July 30th, 2014|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, MODFLOW-USG, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , , |

The new particle tracking program mod-PATH3DU, developed by S.S. Papadopulos & Associates, provides a vital component for interpretation and analysis of MODFLOW-USG groundwater models. This program will be integrated into Visual MODFLOW Flex in a future release. The following images are some of examples of pathline analysis using mod-PATH3DU and UnStructured Grid models (Voronoi and Quad-Based [...]

Visualising Groundwater Flow Patterns With MODPATH Particle Tracking

November 15th, 2012|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , , |

Particle tracking can be an important tool in numerical groundwater modeling. Particles can be used for conceptualizing and quantifying source areas for water entering a groundwater flow system and the discharge areas for flow exiting the groundwater system and all points in between. Visual MODFLOW uses MODPATH, a semi-analytical particle tracking scheme, to calculate 3D [...]
