AnAqSim in Depth (Mar 26 – May 1)

Become a fluent AnAqSim/AnAqSimEDU user and apply it in a variety of situations.

Session 1: Single Layer Modeling – Domains and External Line Boundaries

  • Review analytic element method
  • Domains: confined, unconfined, and fresh/salt interface, and vertical plane flow
  • Defining domain extent
  • External line boundaries

Session 2: Single Layer Modeling – Wells, Recharge, and Internal Line Boundaries

  • Pumping wells
  • Well pathlines
  • Domains that dewater
  • Uniform recharge/leakage
  • Internal line boundaries

Session 3: Multi-Layer Modeling

  • 2D vs. 3D flow
  • Vertical leakage, storage, and spatially-variable area sinks (SVAS)
  • Top/bottom conditions with SVAS
  • SVAS basis point spacing and accuracy
  • Layering schemes

Session 4: Pathlines and Capture Zone Delineation

  • Pathline tracing in AnAqSim
  • Pathline options
  • Viewing and analyzing pathlines
  • Pathline tracing across boundaries
  • Delineation of water sources to wells

Session 5: Transient Modeling

  • Transient general equation and storage concepts
  • Transient inputs
  • Options for initial heads
  • Transient outputs
  • Simulations with constant initial heads

Session 6: Transient Modeling and Advanced Topics

  • Simulations with initial heads from a prior simulation
  • Transient pathlines
  • Computation considerations
  • Solution settings and convergence
  • Advanced analysis tools
  • Calibration

Instructors

  • Charlie Fitts, PhD, Owner of Fitts Geosolutions, author of AnAqSim and Groundwater Science, 2nd ed. (sessions 1-3, 5, 6)
  • Charlie McLane, PhD, and Mark Kauffman, McLane Environmental, authors of flexAEM tutorials (session 4)

Logistics

  • Six one-hour sessions, one per week beginning 26/27 March
