SLAEM/MLAEM - Analytic Element Model - models regional groundwater flow in systems of a confined aquifer, unconfined aquifer and leaky aquifer
SLAEM/MLAEM Categories: flow models - localization, flow models - capture zone, solute transport model - saturated zone
SLAEM / MLAEM Overview
The AEM family of computer programs, SLAEM, MLAEM/2, and MLAEM, are based on the Analytic Element Method developed by Dr. O.D.L. Strack. For a description of the Analytic Element Method, see "Groundwater Mechanics" by O.D.L. Strack (Prentice-Hall, 1989). The computer programs are intended for modeling regional groundwater flow in systems of confined, unconfined, and leaky aquifers. SLAEM (Single Layer Analytic Element Model) is the single-layer version of the program. MLAEM/2 (Multi Layer Analytic Element Model) can access two layers while the number of layers supported by MLAEM is limited only by hardware. All programs run under Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and NT. The programs are native windows applications and are accessed via a modern and flexible Graphical User Interface (GUI), as well as via a command-line interface. The latter capability makes it easy to drive the program from other programs such as Arc-View, ARC/INFO, and PEST. The programs create files from data entered graphically via the GUI; these files can be read in later. The programs read DXF-files and produce BNA files that may be read by other programs such as SURFER.
