Dry well simulation using reservoir bc

Post by Alexander » Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:03 pm


I was wondering how to set up a simulation for dry well using new "reservoir bc". I'd like to fill the well with known rate (m^3/hr) for several time and later to perform falling head infiltraion. After reading the tutorial I couldn't understand how to set the RATE(m^3/hr) and which boundary to apply on the surface of the well(bottom and the "wall"). I see that for time dependent simulation I should apply "Variable Flux 1" as the RATE, however the units are m/hr and not m^3/hr as I expect.
I use axisymmetric geometry.

Thank you for assistance,

Note that I have posted a couple of examples on this new Reservoir BC at https://www.pc-progress.com/en/Default. ... eservoirBC, including for a falling head infiltration experiment, and including for 2D and radially symmetric domains. From these examples, it should be quite clear how to proceed. J.
