Materials setting in femwater


Recommended Posts


I use the GMS8.2 version to simulate flow only. 

I find the "effective porosity" in the Materials settings, but it's "total porosity" in the FEMwater manual(P48) MP2 .

I think the manual is correct. If it's true, Is the data of total porosity same as the saturated moisture content in Unsat. Curves?

and should I set the "effective porosity ratio" in flow simulation?

Thanks for any suggestion ! :)

I'm not sure about the effective/total porosity, but the Unsat Curve dialogue in GMS is simply to generate a look up table of values, it is not connected to any of the other model inputs (and the inputs are not stored by GMS). Also there is a bug in the units as discussed here:
