HST3D:A Computer Code for Simulation of Heat and Solute Transport in Three-Dimensional Ground-Water Flow Systems
Entry ID: USGS_HST3D

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Heat- and Solute-Transport Program (HST3D) simulates ground-water flow and
associated heat and solute transport in three dimensions. Over the years since
the release of Versions 1.0 through 1.4, various additions, modifications, and
corrections have been made to the original simulator. Major changes included in
Version 2 are (1) a revised data-input file with all spatial information
described by coordinate location; (2) a new iterative solver for the matrix
equations based on a generalized conjugate-gradient method; (3) an
evapotranspiration boundary condition; (4) a division of the simulator output
into many files; (5) a new set of output files designed for use by
post-processing programs for graphical visualization and for flow totalization;
(6) a pre-processor for evaluating dimensioning requirements; and (7) a
post-processor for totalizing boundary flow rates and cumulative amounts. The
post-processing program for graphical visualization must be supplied by the
user. Version 2 of the simulator has been verified using five test problems
selected from the published literature. One involves heat transport, four
involve solute transport, and all have variable-density fluids.
