Graphic editor

 Graphic editor window serves as a pre- and post-processor for MODFE and RADFLOW programs. Pre-processor allows specifying heterogeneity zones, initial and boundary conditions on the numerical model grid. Postprocessor allows loading MODFE or RADFLOW output file, viewing and saving simulation results.

 In MODFE all the data, excepting for heterogeneity zones are input and edited at model nodes, while heterogeneity zones are referred to model blocks.

 In RADLOW all the data are  input in model blocks.

 Guidelines for parameter input see in "Input parameters" section.

 Graphic editor includes model grid section, pumping well (the editor window left section) and command buttons placed at the bottom of the editor window.

 Model nodes are shown as dots (MODFE). To zoom in the dots push "2" key, to zoom out push "1", to return to the original size – "3".

 The graphic editor is launched from the main menu through "Model > MODFE > Open" (or "Model > RADFLOW > Open") followed by choosing the previously saved model.

Explanatory table

"Well" button

On/off button is to add or remove the well from the selected layer. SHIFT + click button switches on/off the well in all the layers.

 

For MODFE: the button is active in heterogeneity zones mode

"Rate" text box

For MODFE only

Specify the pumping well rate (m3/day) in the current layer. Discharge corresponds to negative rate value, recharge – to the positive one The text box is active in heterogeneity zones mode

"Well radius" text box

For MODFE only

Specify well radius (m) in the current layer. The text box is active in heterogeneity zones mode

"Parameter to edit"

list box

MODFE

Select parameter for entry and editing on the grid: heterogeneity zones, initial well head (m), point source rate (m3/day), recharge boundary condition (that is any value used as a mark that can be removed by pushing DEL key). If data is loaded from the output file the parameter list is supplemented with calculated well head and drawdown. All parameters, except heterogeneity zones are entered and edited in the grid nodes. Heterogeneity zones relate to model blocks

 

RADFLOW

Select parameter for entry and editing on the grid: horizontal hydraulic conductivity, vertical hydraulic conductivity, storage coefficient, specific yield. If data is loaded from the output file the parameter list is supplemented with calculated well head and drawdown

"Value" frame

The upper text box shows the parameter value in the current block or node. The lower text box contains the parameter input value (stored in memory) to be assigned to any (highlighted) block or node

 

For MODFE only

In heterogeneity zones mode list of previously indicated zones appear in the lower combo box

"Radius" frame

The upper combo box indicates the block number along the R-axis.

"Block" text box indicates the current block size and allows editing the block size value (for MODFE is active in heterogeneity zones mode)

 

For MODFE: if data is input to nodes, it shows size of the block just to the left of the indicated node (the first node from the model left edge is the well radius)

 

"Radius" text box indicates horizontal distance from the pumping well center 1) to the cursor position (when the mouse is moved); or 2) to the right boundary of the current block (for keyboard navigation through model blocks or left mouse click on the block) or for MODFE 3) to the current node (for keyboard navigation through model nodes or left mouse click on the node)

"Layer" frame

MODFE

The upper text box indicates the layer number (the first layer from the model bottom is No 1). If data is input to nodes, it indicates the number of the layer under the node (the first node from the model bottom is zero).

"Thickness" text box indicates the current layer thickness and allows to edit the thickness value. The text box is active in heterogeneity zone mode. If data is input to nodes, it indicates the thickness of the layer under the node (the first node from the model bottom is zero).

"Z" text box indicates the vertical distance from the model bottom to the cursor position (when the mouse is moved); or 2) to the current layer top (for keyboard navigation through model blocks or left mouse click on the block) or 3) to the current node (for keyboard navigation through model nodes or left mouse click on a node)

 

 

RADFLOW

The upper text box indicates the layer number (the first layer is the upper one in the model).

"Thickness" text box indicates the thickness of the current layer (this box allows to edit the layer thickness).

"Z" text box indicates either the vertical distance between the model top and the cursor position (when the mouse is moved), or between the model top and the middle of the current layer (for keyboard navigation through model blocks or left mouse click on a block)

"R" button

On/off button allows changing the view of radial (horizontal) grid. At On position a regular grid is displayed

"Z" button

On/off button allows changing the view of vertical grid. At On position a regular grid is displayed

"#" button

On/off button to switch on/off the grid. At On position the grid is not visible

Lens zooming in the model from the center in every direction, vertically or horizontally. Pushing ALT button + moving mouse left button pressed, displays the frame for zooming the model

Lens zooming out the model from the center in every direction, vertically or horizontally

Shift the model in the certain direction. By pushing CTRL button + moving mouse left button pressed, the model is shifted in the direction of the mouse movement

Cancel the lens and model shift

Cancel changes (made before saving)

On/off copy mode: button on allows to paste the saved values (see "Value" frame) into the selected model block or node

Data import from the file:

binary ANSDIMAT data (*.bin) – file previously saved in binary code of ANSDIMAT-compatible format; loads value and color into each block;

binary ASCII DATA (*.*) – file in ASCII codes, where the number of blocks along R or Z axes is specified, and values are written by layers;

binary Golden Software data (*.dat) – file in dat format; data from the third column is imported

Launch "Selection" dialog box. Color selection of a data range. Double left mouse click on a bock or node selects all the values equal to that of the current block by a random color

Launch "Modify values" dialog box. Data substitution and color selection

Paste the saved value (see "Value" frame) into all blocks or nodes and select them with the current color

Save model data to a file:

binary ANSDIMAT data (*.bin) – binary code of ANSDIMAT-compatible format; saves value and color into each block;

binary ASCII DATA (*.*) – file in ASCII codes, where the number of blocks along R or Z axes is specified, and values are written by layers;

binary Golden Software data (*.dat) – file in dat format; coordinates and of nodes or block center as well as values in nodes or blocks are written

Save the current model image in bmp format

Create a new window with the current image (the image is automatically placed into a buffer)

Choose color for data input. The selected color becomes current and paints the blocks or nodes to which the values are input

Take the current block or nodes color (by shift + mouse pushing the current block value is put in memory)

Launch "Grouping" dialog box. Data grouping followed by painting

Launch "Animation" dialog box. Applied only for data loaded from the input file

Search for block (or node) with maximal parameter value

Search for block (or node) with minimal parameter value

Launch "Distance" dialog box. Measure distance between two points

Launch "Plot" dialog box. Plot 2D graph by data displayed on the grid

Launch postprocessor for data output and viewing

Launch "Generate model grid" dialog box

Launch "Legend" dialog box

Save the data and exit from the editor

Save data without exit from the editor

Exit from the editor without saving

 

Key functions for LMB pressed +

SHIFT

Parameter input into blocks. A frame appears for color selection of a region and input data values stored in the memory into blocks (see frame "Value")

ALT

Expand the selected region. A frame appears indicating to which size the model can be expanded

CTRL

Shift model. Model is shifted along the line of mouse movement
