3DFEMFAT is a 3-Dimensional Finite-Element Model of Flow And Transport through Saturated-Unsaturated Media. A Preprocessor (for grid generation) and Postprocessor (for visualization) using GMS FEMWATER are now included in 3DFEMFAT. The GMS FEMWATER Module is required for running the preprocessor and postprocessor but is not included; it must be purchased separately. Typical applications are infiltration, well-head protection, agriculture pesticides, sanitary landfill, radionuclide disposal sites, hazardous waste disposal sites, density-induced flow and transport, saltwater intrusion, etc. 3DFEMFAT can do simulations of flow only, transport only, combined sequential flow and transport, or coupled density-dependent flow and transport. In comparison to conventional finite-element or finite-difference models, the transport module of 3DFEMFAT offers several advantages: (1) it completely eliminates numerical oscillation due to advection terms, (2) it can be applied to mesh Peclet number ranging from 0 to infinity, (3) it can use very large time step size to greatly reduce numerical diffusion, and (4) the hybrid Lagrangian-Eulerian finite-element approach is always superior to and will never be worse than its corresponding upstream finite-element or finite-difference method. Because of these advantages, 3DFEMFAT is ideal for applications to large field problems. The special features of 3DFEMFAT are its flexibility and versatility in modeling a wide range of real-world problems.


The generalized Richards' equation and Darcy's law governing pressure distribution and water flow in saturated-unsaturated media are simulated with the Galerkin finite-element method subject to appropriate initial and four types of boundary conditions. The transport equation is derived based on the principle of conversation of mass. The contaminant transport equation is simulated with either the conventional finite-element methods or the hybrid Lagrangian-Eulerian finite-element method with the adaptive local grid refinement and peak capturing scheme subject to appropriate initial and four types of boundary conditions. Mixed hexahedral elements, triangular prisms, and tetrahedral elements are used to facilitate the discretization of the region of interest.
