3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

STFLO is a simple linear, finite-element code designed to simulate two-dimensional (areal or vertical) plane or axisymmetric ground-water flow in porous media. STFLO handles inhomogeneous anisotropic material properties, confined and semiconfined (leaky) aquifers, distributed or point sources, and specified heads or flux boundary conditions. A combination of quadrilateral and triangular elements may be used for the discretization of the flow domain.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The program solves the general partial differential equation which governs steady-state fluid flow in a two-dimensional anisotropic and heterogeneous material.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:
NESC9852/01
The test cases included in this package were compiled and executed by NEA-DB on a CDC CYBER 830 computer in 9 seconds of CPU time.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The primary application of STFLO is to estimate the rate of ground-water flow through a waste package by simulating the steady-state flow in the waste package and the surrounding rock. STFLO output consists of hydraulic heads at the nodes and velocities at the center of each finite element. STFLO is  simple and inexpensive to apply. Its application is limited to isothermal, steady-state flow in a porous medium.
