Description AIR/W is a finite element software product for analyzing groundwater-air interaction problems within porous materials such as soil and rock. Its formulation allows consideration of analyses ranging from simple, saturated steady-state problems to sophisticated, saturated-unsaturated time-dependent problems. In works as a plug-in to SEEP/W. Multiple analyses of similar or different types can be done in a single project file. Different solutions can be compared in the same file. Staged analyses can be done for construction sequencing with moving boundary conditions. Define boundary conditions and material properties by geometry region, rather than on the finite element mesh. Unstructured quadrilateral mesh with fine-tuning options. Interface elements can be added on lines to model soil-structure interactions, liners and geo-fabrics, cutoff walls and wick drains. Define a results graph on a geometry object (line, point, or region) or on a cut line or plane. Plot multiple results graphs together to compare data. Make a movie of analysis results to show how results change over time. Custom user add-in functions to define material property or boundary condition functions using internal solver data or external data held in Excel or any other .NET program. Examples with a detailed discussion on how to use and apply the relevant features and how to interpret the results. Fault-tolerant licensing on a wide area network.
