Description Seep3D provides an interactive 3D environment for saturated/unsaturated groundwater modeling. The problem geometry is constructed one block at a time using an interactive building block approach with material properties and boundary conditions defined on the geometry. The analysis is solved and the results visualised in 3D as surface contours and flow lines. Create graphical plots. Data extraction tools can pinpoint any computed value. An analysis can be extended to regional groundwater flow to include specific structural geometry such as reservoirs and dams, flow cutoff barriers, individual seepage drains or wells, combinations of side and down-slope flows, and infiltration and flow in waste barrier systems. All of these items can be combined into a single model. The program is based on the concept of "blocks" that are combined together to create a geometric model. To create a model the user drags a block from the Region catalog window onto the 3D View; then drops new regions onto the existing region faces to build the model geometry (called the "domain"). The finite element mesh pattern is inherent to each region in the domain. Therefore, as regions are connected together, the mesh is built automatically, ensuring complete mesh compatibility between regions. This makes it possible to create a 3-dimensional mesh over any domain that can be built with regions. Materials and boundary conditions are created separately from the domain. This lets the user delete regions from the domain without losing any boundary condition or material information. Creating one boundary condition and then applying it to many locations on the domain means that information is only entered once, reducing the likelihood of errors. Material properties can be changed globally by editing a material; the new values will be used for all regions that use that material. Once setup the domain and applied boundary conditions and material properties, the problem is ready to be analyzed using one of the built-in analysis algorithms. It contains iterative solvers that can handle linear, nonlinear, steady-state, transient, and adaptive analyses. Data can be extracted using "result planes" that "cut" through the domain, displaying surface contours, flow vectors, and flow lines. Any parameter can be contoured on the exterior hull of the domain. Create x-y plots, and copy data into Excel for further analysis. The model can be explored in 3D by interactively zooming, panning, and rotating within the 3D view. Multiple 3D views can also be displayed. When an object is modified in one of the views, its display is updated within all views.
