SAMG for Modflow Released
Posted Sun July 15, 2012 @03:06PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News The MODFLOW software from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) organization simulates flows in groundwater reservoirs, to show transport and diffusion of certain materials (e.g. pollutants).

The software package SAMG was developed for highly efficient, numerical solutions of large, sparsely populated matrix problems.

Problems of this type can be found in several application domains, e.g. in simulations of oil reservoirs, automotive design and also simulations relevant for environmental analyses, such as groundwater flow. SAMG is developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI).

The combination of SAMG and MODFLOW accelerates groundwater simulations enormously. The gain in computation time in solving large systems can be of orders of magnitude. This makes the software the first choice for companies and those seeking to optimize use of computing resources.

The SAMG-MODFLOW package now available online includes the SAMG Library customized for MODFLOW, MODFLOW 2005 linked to the SAMG Library, documentation, test models, as well as an interface description to allow users to link SAMG to their MODFLOW variant.

MODFLOW itself remains of course free of charge. Please visit the online shop of SCAI´s sales spin-off scapos AG under
