Hi all, I have come up with some errors when running the tute model of TUTE: MODFLOW – Generating Data from Solids that indicate “changing heads are below the bottom of cell xxx". It is so weird that a tute brings up a problem like this. Having read a thread in the forum suggesting to remove the BC of constant heads from the sources sinks coverage, I found many cells dry out with red triangular flags after a modflow run. I knew it was different from what is instructed in the tute sheet, but it seems plausible for me that without those BC these cells could dry out. A further question is, i was constructing a more complex multi-layer solids model and tried to convert to modflow. My BCs are constant heads set on the arc of the coverage boundary, kind of surrounding my small catchment of interest, and they are definitely all below the bottom of my first, second and part of the third layer, so how to define the default layer range? (i.e. from 1 to 1, 3 to 12 as I have 12 layers in total, or 1 to 12?). PS: in this coverage I define wells, specific head, layer range for source sink and layer range for areal properties, and tick used for BC option. The first trial I have set was 1 to 12 (dont know if appropriate), converted map to modflow, and could see the blue dots assigned from layer1 to 12 of my conceptual model. All of them indicate the some heads I define in the coverage. (Really? Does it have to be a 58 m head in the even very bottom of my rock layer of 30 m elevation?). As expected, the model warned that lots of heads were below cells' bottom. When removing all of them in sources sinks and running the model in steady state, I found it never converge. A feeling was that I did it wrong when defining BCs. This is where I got confused. Could anyone kindly help? I am using GMS Version 10.0 Thanks for any help Rgds Dylan
