Also Includes....

  • OLE full server supporting both linked and embedded items

  • Pumping Test Simulator generates drawdown versus time
  • Derivative Analysis
Modeling Version

  • Modeling version adds a full analytical modeling environment including Environmental Simulation's WinFlow - WinTran analytical flow and transport modeling package. WinFlow is an interactive, analytical model that simulates two-dimensional steady-state and transient ground-water flow (both confined and unconfined aquifers) with wells, uniform recharge, circular recharge/discharge areas, and line sources or sinks. The model depicts the flow field using streamlines, particle traces, and water-level contours. WinTran feels like an analytic model but is actually an embedded finite-element simulator which utilizes results from WinFlow.
  • WinFlow is simple to use and highly interactive, allowing you to create an analytical model in minutes. The software features standard Windows pulldown menus and dialogs to facilitate the model design. Common menu selections and commands are also available on the toolbar.

Major Features

 

Data can be entered conveniently using the new import wizard, or you can enter data manually, by cut and paste from spreadsheets or by importing text files. Data can be entered using any set of units and Aquiferwin32 provides the most flexible unit conversion calculator of any aquifer test program. You may define any set of units for any variable and change these units at any time! Aquiferwin32 allows you to analyze your data using either manual on-screen curve matching by the new click-and-drag feature or via automated statistical matching techniques. Unlike some other pumping test analysis software, Aquiferwin32 displays an unlimited number of type curves for multiple-type curve techniques (e.g. Newman unconfined). You specify which type curves you want to view. This is also handy for creating custom type curve graphs for use in the field. These are some of the most important features in Aquiferwin32. Please take a look at our free demo and see that Aquiferwin32 is the best software for analyzing aquifer test data!

Major Features include:

  • Simultaneous optimization of multiple data sets
  • Serves as archive for raw data with options for data conversions during analysis
  • Full control of parameter and data units on a well by well basis
  • Global unit changes
  • Parameter-based unit conversion calculator
  • Dockable toolbars with tool tips
  • WYSIWYG Printing with Print Preview
  • Context-sensitive Help
  • Multiple Document Interface
  • Tab Views including spreadsheet, type curve, and map views
  • Data spreadsheet in split window
  • Liberal use of Property Sheets (Tab Dialogues) to maximize ease of use
  • Native Windows 9X, NT, ME, XP and 2000
  • Customizable Views - Text and Parameter Annotations, Legends, Symbols, Lines and Frames
  • Frames support display of Bitmaps and Metafiles
  • Site Map and Wells Displayed in Plan View
  • Customizable Headers/Footers supporting Bitmaps and Metafiles
  • Exports to DXF and Metafile formats
  • Generates multi-curve type curve plots
  • Full control of graphs - size, titles, axes, colors, fonts, dash patterns, line thickness
New Functionality in Version 3:

  • Legend Wizard - Enables easy setup of legends and optionally automatically resizes legend, adds default parameters and maintains position in the lower right corner of the graph or map
  • On screen editing of items within legends
  • Line Calculations and Distance/Drawdown graphs
  • 3D Perspective in Flow Model
  • Shapefile export of contours, particle traces, streamlines and wells
  • Shapefile maps now supported
  • WinTran is now included, along with WinFlow, in the Modeling version.

Unique Features

 

  • Aquiferwin32 does not require defining wells, simply import or enter the time/drawdown data into the spreadsheet, fill in the radial distance and pumping rate on a property sheet and either match the data manually or click the optimize button. It is that easy!
  • To manually match data to type curves, simply depress the left mouse button, hold it down and drag the data to match it to type curves. You do not even have to activate the procedure with a menu item as in some products. During this operation, all annotations, legends and the optional internal grid of the graph disappear to allow fewer distractions during the matching process. Go to full screen mode via the View/Full Screen menu and the internal part of the type curve graph is expanded to fill the entire screen to make manual matching even easier.
  • For multiple well analyses, no other pumping test analysis software provides for a site plan to plot well locations over a basemap. Once defined, a multiple well analysis allows you to manually or automatically match each monitoring well individually by simply toggling among them. The appropriate data is constantly visible and editable in the split-window spreadsheet adjacent to the graph. You can select an individual data point by double-clicking the mouse within the graph and that point will be selected in the spreadsheet. You can also drag a rectangle around a range of data points on the graph to select them in the spreadsheet. (You would most likely do this to give the weight the points to give them less significance during optimizations.)
  • For multiple well analyses, you can optimize across all monitoring wells for whichever parameter or parameters you want. In a leaky-confined analyses, you might optimize Transmissivity and Storage coefficient while leaving r/B free to vary among individual wells
  • We are unaware of any other pumping test analysis software which has more options for analyzing and presenting your results. No other pumping test analysis software is more customizable with respect to legends, printed headers and footers, saving your defaults to the system registry, symbol control on each and every data point, generation of traditional type curve suites as seen in the literature. (Remember, if the axis labels are Time and Drawdown, it is not a type curve.)Aquiferwin32 supports variable pumping rates on all pumping test analyses involving type curves so you can analyze the drawdown and recovery data together or account for fluctuations in pumping rate during the test.

We are unaware of any other pumping test analysis software which:

  • has a full implementation of derivative analysis in which you can generate suites of 1st order derivative type curves, do manual curve matches of 1st order derivative data to those type curves and perform an optimized match of the 1st order derivatives.
  • includes pumping test simulations with contour maps of drawdown and drawdown versus time graphs at any number of monitoring wells.
  • extends the analytical solutions into a full featured modeling environment with contour maps of hydraulic head or drawdown, color floods of head or drawdown and particle tracking. The modeling environment also optimizes calibration targets and is ideal for presentation of image well theory. How can you effectively demonstrate image well theory without a plan view contour map?
