Total Pressure Head Depiction

Post by Falk » Sat Aug 24, 2019 6:29 am


I was simulating a 3D general mesh model for infiltration from a ditch.
Actually, the model calculation has been finished successfully and water content and pressure head distribution looks reasonable.
However, if I switch to total pressure head the values of pressure head a kept in the visualization which cannot be the case if gravitation head (i.e. elevation) changes vertically.
I checked it with other models and also on a second computer, but the error occurs again. This is my first model with the 3.xx version, I thought with Hydrus 2.xx is worked always.
Did I miss something by using Hydrus 3.xx or has anybody an idea to overcome this problem?

Hi Falk,

Indeed, it seems that the display of the total pressure head does not work in Version 3. I will ask my colleagues in Prague to fix it asap. Thanks for letting us know about this bug.
