The inflow due to recharge calculated in feflow is 10 times larger than the offline calculation? Asper my understanding, volume in feflow is larger than the volume calculated offline. Does anyone have any idea why the domain volume in feflow is larger than the original volume and how i ca rectify this?

It will be helpful if you describe the parameter used and the workflow. In the attached image, you can see that FEFLOW recharge applied as In/outflow on top/bottom takes into consideration the area only. I believe you are using other parameter, applying an expression to the parameter, or other configuration, which could cause the unexpected values. In case you have very specific questions about your model, the technical support ( can take provide you detailed guidance.

I used in/outflow on top/bottom with a recharge of 0.00045 m/day. My area (offline) is approximately 9.6 Sq.Km. The total recharge in the area is expected to be around 800 gpm. But, the model is giving me 8000 gpm. The recharge has seasonal variations and I see a recharge volume which is 10 times the expected for all the months. I also tried using the measuring tool in FEFLOW7.5, but the measurements are no where near to the observed real time measurements. Can you please explain why this might be happening? Thank You.
