Re: HYDRUS 1D Model Fails to Converge

Dear professor Jirka,
Thank you very much for the reply! Actually I tried, but I got two different output in the end (as shown in the Fig.1 and Fig.2).
I ran HYDRUS 1D with a single layer as the reference case. I added Alfa2 , n2, but set w2 =0 in the SELECTOR.IN file, and ran HYDRUS again with all exact the same input files and settings (Fig.3). I compared the results and found that they are different in the end. But I also notice that the observed node in the deep layer(131 and 211) already show difference in the beginning at the time 10 sec (Fig.1). Do I miss or misunderstood something?
Thanks a lot for the help!

From your input I can see that you use either the Kosugi (Model=3) or Durner dual-porosity (Model=5) models. Durner model is obviously not based on the Kosugi's model, but on the van Genuchten-Mualem model. Thus, if you want to compare these two simulations, you need to use consistent models.
