An interactive 2D modelling tool.

Sketch of Simplified Aquifer

This website provides an interactive tool to model the flow field of simplified two-dimensional floodplain aquifers interactively. The focus of the tool lies in the lateral hyporheic exchange flux. It is driven by the unequal width of floodplains that typically have narrow cross-sections on inlet and outlet. The problem is defined by the following boundary conditions:

  • fixed head on the west
  • fixed head on the east
  • perfect hydraulic contact to river in the south
  • fixed influx from the north
Anisotropy of hydraulic transmissivity is allowed in the two principal directions. The shape of the northern boundary can be arbitrary.
