PART II

Simulating Flow in a One-Dimensional, Homogeneous System

Consider the situation shown below where the conductivity of the homogeneous, isotropic,

confined aquifer is (K = 0.5 m/day, thickness is b = 1.5 m, so transmissivity T = 0.5*1.5 = 0.75

m2/day). The heads on the left- and right-hand boundaries are constant at hA = 6.1 m and hB =

1.5 m, respectively. The mesh spading is x = 1 m and the initial head across the aquifer is

h(x,t=0) = 6.1 m. The storage coefficient is S = 0.02.

Explicit method of solution

In the explicit method of solution, we use all the information at the previous time step to

compute the value at this time step. The method proceeds by calculating for the unknown head

point-by-point across the domain (i = 1, , n). This method can be unstable for large time steps.

The finite-difference equation for the calculation is

where the unknown head at time level l+1 is on the left-hand-side and all of the known

Whats going on here? At the initial time there is no flow across the aquifer, but at time t > 0,

flow occurs. The water released from storage in a grid cell over time t is

V = Sx(1)h

Water flowing out of the cell over the time interval

V = T

x /2

So, this needs to be limited to be less than the total water available in the cell, or

When r > 0.5 the time interval is too large and the cell doesnt contain enough water. This

causes an instable solution.

Assignment:

Water flows from left to right in the confined aquifer in the figure below.

Use the following numerical parameters for the aquifer: 5 finite-difference cells; cell width (x)

= 80 m; transmissivity (T) = 1000 m2/day; storage coefficient (S) = 0.002; pumping from first

cell (Q ) = 3.96 m3/day/m2; pumping from fourth cell (Q ) = 6.04 m3/day/m2; left boundary

head (h0) = 40 m; and right boundary head (h5) = 35 m. Solve for the head at each of the four

unknown finite-difference nodes (i = 1, 2, 3, and 4) using an explicit method with a time step of

t = 10 minutes. Is this a stable time step length for the explicit method? What is the r

parameter?

4. Assignment Problem (see Figure below): Use GrounwaterVistas to prepare the

MODFLOW model for the problem described below1

An alluvial valley contains a river that is in direct contact with an unconfined aquifer that,

in turn, overlies a semi-confined aquifer.

A grid of 3 layers, 11 rows (x = 200 m) and 8 columns (y = 300 m) is used to model

the aquifer.

A well pumps 1200 m3/day from cell (row, column, layer) = (5, 6, 3)

Recharge occurs at a rate of 200 mm/year

Heads along Row 1 = 22 m above the top of the confining bed

Heads along Row 11 = 18 m above the top of the confining bed

A river extends along Column 3 in Layer 1 of the model. The river is 10 m wide and 300

m long in each cell. The conductivity of the river bottom is Kriv = 0.1 m/day, and the

thickness of the riverbed is = 0.2 m. The river stage (height of water in the river) and the

river bed elevation vary according to the values in the following table.

o Layer 1: Kh = 5 m/day, Kv = 1 m/day, n = 0.35

o Layer 2: Kh = 0.1 m/day, Kv = 0.05 m/day, n = 0.40

o Layer 3: Kh = 10 m/day, Kv = 1 m/day, n = 0.30
