3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

FEWA is a finite element model  designed to treat complex transient real-world problems of sources/  sinks, Dirichlet boundary values, Neumann or Gauchy fluxes, and leaky confining beds (aquitards) simultaneously.
FEMA deals with the construction, verification, and demonstration of a finite element model of material transport through aquifers. The particular features of FEMA are its versatility and flexibility  to deal with as many real-world problems as possible.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

In FEWA, both quadrilateral and triangular elements, or a combination of the two, are used to facilitate the discretization of a coumpound region with highly irregular curved boundaries. Also, a pointwise iteration solution strategy for solving the matrix equation approximating the partial differential equation is included as an alternative to the direct solution method. This inclusion makes the model efficient and applicable to large-field problems when the bandwidth of the matrix becomes large.  Three optional sorption models are embodied in FEMA. These are linear isotherm and Freundlich and Langmuir nonlinear isotherms. Point as well as distributed source/sinks are included to represent  artificial injection/withdrawals and natural infiltration of precipitation. All source/sinks can be transient or steady state. Finite element methods are adopted to transform the governing differential equations to the matrix equation. To increase the applicability of the model in terms of stability and convergence, twelve options have been included for the derivation of the matrix equation. The resulting matrix equation is solved with either the direct elimination or successive relaxation technique.
