Model/AMWELLS model/New model to start a new AMWELLS model. A
dialog is displayed (shown below) that includes all the parameters
to define a new model. These include conceptual scheme, boundary
conditions, anisotropy, model dimensions, coordinate origin and
static water level.
When you click
“Create”, a new model will be saved under the name you specify with
file extension .atm. It is important that each model is saved in a
different file folder.
conceptual scheme consists of two
Principal conceptual scheme (confined, unconfined, leaky aquifer
Detailed conceptual scheme that specifies further details of the
selected principal scheme.
Model thickness refers to the
total model thickness. For multilayer aquifer systems, all the
aquifers have equal thicknesses with the sum equal to the total
model thickness. Use “Model dimensions” tool to change thicknesses of
Static water level is measured in
meters above the model bottom. For an unconfined aquifer, static
water level has to be smaller than assigned
Layer settings – location
and concepts for individual layers within the leaky aquifer system.
The option is enabled for leaky aquifers only.
