Groundwater Flow Modeling
Model Code Development
Layne has developed new model code and modified existing code for the purposes of simplifying the modeling process or to provide solutions other models cannot. Scientists at Layne developed EPA's wellhead protection area delineation model: WhAEM. This analytic element model is being used throughout the country by state agencies and consultants.
Most recently we developed and patented a new groundwater program for flow in the vicinity of horizontal wells and Ranney® Collector Wells (patent pending). The collector well model is embedded in the TimML 3-D analytic element code to include the effects of regional groundwater flow as well as nearby surface waters. This tool allows Layne to provide optimal well siting and design specifications for large well systems and high-capacity collector wells.
