Inquiry about the flux direction in inclined flow model

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am Lang. I set up an inclined aquifer TOUGH2 flow model with an injection in the left using Petrasim. And I was wondering if the flux direction is horizontal or parallel to the inclined aquifer. Thank you.

Again, the answer to this question depends on how you've modified the model input. Keep in mind that flux through a model is always across cell boundaries.

If you have modified the gravity vector to simulate an inclined model, then the flux would be across cell connections that are at an angle to the gravity vector and the majority of the flux would probably be across the x and y connections.

If you have kept the gravity vector as a vertical vector, then flux will be divided between the x/y and z connections.
