Hi
I have been using inverse approach to simulate change of head with rainfall event for a specific period. In this approach, I ask software to estimate alpha, Ks, n, and l. At the end of calculation, software gives this message: "Calculations have finished successfully". However, I can not see the simulation results after pressing enter (attached photo). May you please help me solving this problem. Thank you in advance.

Re: No result after successful calculation
I cannot see how this could happen. Can you post your project? J.
Re: No result after successful calculation
Thank you for the prompt reply. I solved this problem. However, I have faced another problem. After doing inversion, the minimum predicted head is about 100 cm. This seems the software sets the saturated head equal to 100 cm (not 0 cm). On the other word, the upper limit for head is 100 cm not 0 cm. How can I fix this problem so that the upper limit for head approaches 0 cm? Thank you again for your help.

HYDRUS does not recognize any upper limit on the pressure head. It has upper and lower limits only for the Atmospheric BC. J.

Hi,
I have the same problem (see attached document), and so far I still have solved, It did not have this problem for similar models. Any idea how to solve will be helpful, maybe it is just a dumb mistake.
Thanks
Best regards,
Dani

Re: No result after successful calculation
The problem is badly defined. It’s impossible to estimate five soil hydraulic parameters from the solute BTC for a column with constant flux conditions. J.
Re: No result after successful calculation
Oh, I did not know that. Might I ask you how do you know that it is badly defined. I mean I know that If I have an unknown I will need 1 equation, if I have 5 unknowns then 5 equations (that are linear independent between them). So I wonder, how can I know (before hand) if it is well or bad defined? And why it is sometimes working for similar setups(E.g. attached files Results > works and No results > does not work).
Thanks
Thanks

Re: No result after successful calculation
I think you should read some texts on Uniqueness, identifiability, stability, and illposedness of the inverse solution. We have written some texts on the topic (see below). You cannot expect to be able to fit parameters that do not affect the measured data. J.
