Hello dressler1,

Sounds like a MODFLOW model ;)
However, for the import of initial heads in FEFLOW I would recommend the following: Save the initial values in a database (.dat f.e.) containing x,y,z (z being the head). Then add the database as a map and establish a parameter link on the hydraulic head, linking the z values with the hydraulic heads. Choose an appropriate interpolation method, i.e. neighborhood relationship when you have dense data already matching with the current mesh.
In the last step, select all nodes where you want to specify the initial heads and assign the values with the link you created.

Hey! thanks!! Ok i'll try that one. From the sound of the directions i'm going to be asking you a few more questions once i've started.


I have a .dac file I open up in FEFLOW 6.0. I'm tring to export a video of this. BUt when I use the "Export AVI form Active View" button, it only records the mass concentration values and the rest of the screen is black. Any suggestinons?

Hi Drew,

There could probably be an issue with the graphics driver or the video codec. Make sure you have installed the latest drivers on your system. For the video codec I would suggest using the 'Microsoft Video 1' codec.
If you are using onboard graphics, switch off the 'High-quality mode', which you find in the Global Settings, OpenGL Graphics.
