• Calibrate transient recharge

    Is there a way to use FePEST to calibrate transient parameters?  I am trying to calibrate a transient model by adjusting monthly recharge values. 

    In my model, I specify in/outflow (recharge) via an expression that multiplies the recharge rate (from the steady-state calibration) by a recharge factor (time-series POW).  For example, in a month when the recharge is double that of the steady-state; the corresponding recharge factor in the time-series is 2.

    Can FePEST be used to estimate the values in the recharge factor time-series?  If it cannot be done via the GUI, can it be done from the command line?

    Yes, that's correct. If three slaves are defined then these three slaves will solve the the model over and over again based on different parameters sets. If you use the default FEFLOW Global Settings then "the slave computer" will decide how to make use of other available local CPU cores to solve the FEM. In a similar fashion, if the the number of slaves is less than the maximum number of CPU cores available then FEFLOW will run inevitably run in parallel.

    Can more than one instance of FEFLOW run on a multi-core machine with a standard license?

    If you are using SAMG, is there an advantage to having multiple instances of FEFLOW running if there are fewer cores available to the solver (presumably increasing the run time)?
  • Changing layer thickness of more than one layer at a time

    In the 3D layer configurator, is there a way to set multiple layers to have a uniform thickness in an existing 3D model?

    Say I have 20 layers in my model, and I want to change the layer thickness so that the first 10 layers each have a thickness of 2 meters.  Is there a way to select the first 10 layers and assign the same thickness to each layer?  Or do I need to manually change the thickness of each layer?
