• RE: Math expression in/outflow..

    Hi Tomás,
    With your explanation, it looks to me that the expression does not spatially constraint the operation. A mathematical expression is applied to the FEFLOW's parameter and to all the mesh elements (automatically). So, you need to reformulate the express, eg. to apply the In/Outflow on top/bottom only to specific areas. A tip: Expressions works also with Elemental User Distributions. You can use them for creating the constraints.
    Please follow-up with our technical support at mike.de@dhigroup.com for details on the workflows.

  • RE: piFreeze leading to negative head

    Hi Josue,<br> <br> Without looking the file, my first guess is that the observation points are just directly in the frozen soil. FEFLOW piFreeze reduces significantly the hydraulic conductivity and &quot;close&quot; the porosity in order to mimic the freezing conditions. For example, if you have low K values and together a boundary node at the same location, which could cause outflow, the situation may be an uncontrolled decrease in head.<br> <br> Please get in touch with MIKE Support (mike.de@dhigroup.com) for further discussion.<br> <br> Best regards<br> Carlos
  • RE: Encountering USB dongle driver issue while installing FEFLOW 8.0 on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

    Hi,<br> The problem is that you are missing the dongle drivers in your Linux OS. Please get in touch with MIKE Support (mike.de@dhigroup.com) for getting the installation packages.<br> Best regards<br> Carlos Rivera
  • RE: Export results time series in coherent time steps

    Hi Philip,<br> Indeed, your observation is correct. FEFLOW automatic time stepping scheme will not necessarily fit the times of the observed time series. If that would be the case, an improper time series can &quot;damage&quot; the model performance significantly. Therefore, if you export the results corresponding to the time series of the simulated values, the export function will include all time steps. There are two cases:<br> (1) If the export does also contain the observed times, then it is just a matter to filter and discard all other times. You can do this task e.g., with a script. You can also have your own script accessing the FEFLOW - Python interface to loop from time steps within an existing FEFLOW result file (*.dac) and then export only data at time fitting your reference.<br> (2) If the export does not contain data at the observed times, I would recommend you to do an interpolation in between FEFLOW simulated times.It is always a prefer solution, so you do not need to affect much the automatic time stepping with extra values.<br> <br> Please reach out support at mike.de@dhigroup.com for specific details.<br> <br> Best regards<br> Carlos Rivera<br> <br> &#160;
  • RE: how to limit the min/max range of hyd' head in all nodes?

    Hi Matan,<br> We are not aware about a bug in piFreeze. But to me this sounds to the following problem: piFreeze will simulate the freezing conditions and therefore, it will change the conductivity and others. If the Fluid-Flux BC on the top boundary is not adjusted, then the amount of fluid could be excessive for the low conductivity values (let's say frozen conditions).<br> In general, you can always set a min./max. hydraulic-head constraint to the nodes associated to the Fluid-Flux BC.<br> Cheers<br> Carlos
  • RE: piChem error OntimeStepConstraint

    Hi Tiago,<br> If you like to discard nodes to the coupling with PHREEQC, the only workaround is to use Inactive Elements. Although, this will inactivate all these nodes entirely from the flow and mass transport calculations.<br> Regarding to the error message with the OnTimeStepConstraint, it is something unknown to DHI. I recommend you to contact us via support.<br> Finally, the automation of files used in the pIchem GUI is not supported.<br> Cheers<br> Carlos
  • RE: wells disappearing or without any flow in rate budget

    Hi Adaliyaz,
    The situation described can only happen due to the following reasons:
    - There is a boundary condition constraint (BCC) associated to the node.
    - There is a time series assigned to the boundary, e.g. with a "GAP".
    - There is a Modulation function assigned with a time series and this has a "GAP".

    (Of course, there could be a user-imported Python script doing things during the run).

    In case you have any further question, please get in touch with support (mike.de@dhigroup.com).

  • RE: How to add base flow data from a river to FePEST.

    Hi Billy,
    FePEST will recognize all nodal selections marked with the option "Budget-History charting". The option is found with a context menu of the specific selection in the FEFLOW GUI.
    Subsequently, FePEST will offer you the options Fluid Rate/Period from the Obs. Def. section in the Problem Settings dialog.
  • RE: My panel Data has no option for inactive cells

    The reason could be that you are solving the flow equation by using "Free and Movable" in the Problem Settings dialog. Inactive elements are not supported under this approach.
