Consider a confined aquifer which is adjacent to two constant head boundaries and a constant recharge infiltrates at the top of the aquifer (see Figure 1).

Solve the problem using MAGNET for the following situation and compare your solution with the analytical solution. Comment on the differences, if any.


MAGNET/Modeling Hints:

  • Use 'Synthetic Mode' to set up your flow model ( 'Other Tools' > 'Utilities' > 'Go to Synthetic Case Area'). The default model domain for synthetic mode is identical to the domain depicted in the figure above.
  • Use the ‘Distance Display’ capabilities when editing geometric features and/or the ‘Ruler’ tool to properly represent distances between model features.
  • Use the given input data parameterize your flow model.
