Why FEMWATER with GMS?
GMS provides a custom interface to the FEMWATER model offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, and elevation data. GMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations.
A fully 3D finite-element model used to simulate density-driven coupled flow and contaminant transport in saturated and unsaturated zones. FEMWATER allows modeling of salinity intrusion and other density-dependent contaminants. Complex stratigraphy can be developed in GMS and directly represented in the model. Solutions can be displayed using realistic 3D plots and animation sequences.
