Hello everyone!

Recently I am modelling a tailing dam using FEFLOW 7.4 considering an unstructured mesh. After calibrating the numerical model it will be necessary to simulate vertical pumping wells around the dam (upstream). Is there any recommendation for preparing the mesh? Since the pumping wells (multilayers wells in FEFELOW) are positioned along the edges of the elements.

I'd consider a linear add-in for mesh generation, so that you are sure to get edges along the well screen. Depending on the need for precise results, you might also want to somehow control element size around the well.

I really appreciate your advice.
