Schlumberger Water Services (SWS) announced the update of Visual MODFLOW Flex 2015, the next generation of groundwater flow, heat and contaminant transport modeling software for groundwater professionals. Visual MODFLOW Flex improves modeling efficiency by integrating 3D hydrogeologic conceptual modeling and industry standard numeric engines in a single, easy-to-use software environment.
Visual MODFLOW Flex is more than just a graphical user interface for MODFLOW groundwater simulations. Visual MODFLOW Flex brings together industry-standard codes for groundwater flow and contaminant transport, essential analysis and calibration tools, and stunning 3D visualization capabilities in a single, easy-to-use software environment.
With Visual MODFLOW Flex, groundwater modelers have all the tools required for addressing local to regional-scale water quality, groundwater supply, and source water protection issues.
What's New in Visual MODFLOW Flex 2015.1:
- Support for MODFLOW-NWT
MODFLOW-NWT is an enhanced version of MODFLOW that improves solutions for unconfined groundwater-flow problems where rewetting of dry cells typically occur. This version of MODFLOW is ideal for mine dewatering simulations, or any other scenarios where cells can dry out.
- Precise Cell Assignment and Editing
Easily assign hydraulic properties and inactive cells to the numerical grid by drawing polylines or polygons, or selecting individual grid cells. Boundary conditions can be easily copied to other layers within your numerical model.
- Easier Definition of Pumping Wells
Visual MODFLOW Flex 2015.1 provides a more natural approach to defining pumping wells by allowing you to define wells and screens on a per-well level. For wells that are screened across multiple layers, Visual MODFLOW Flex automatically calculates the proportion of the total pumping rate assigned to each well grid cell in the model.
- Improved Pumping Well Visualization
Visualize well screen intervals in cross-sectional views and render pumping well locations by pumping well attributes such as pumping rate or concentration values.
- Flexible Handling of Time Series Data
Conveniently import, view or edit pumping schedule data in relative times (e.g. time starting at 0 days), in addition to absolute time (e.g., 04/22/2015).
- Advanced Particle Tracking Options
Define pathline travel time and time marker frequency for MODPATH particle tracking simulations.
- Cell-by-cell Visualization
Display the calculated total flux into and out of grid cells, including baseflow, to easily identify gaining/losing surface water bodies such as rivers.
- Bug Fixes and Enhancements
