AquiferWin 32 - aquifer test results dispaly and analysis
New Features 

What's new in version 3

We updated AquiferWin32 to include many features users requested. We made the application more user-friendly and full-featured. Since we continually enhance our software, please let us know if there is a feature you would like added. As always, all interim releases are free and downloadable from the internet until version 4.0 is available.


New analyses
Kipp, 1985 - Type Curve Analysis of Inertial Effects in the Response of a Well to a Slug Test
The Kipp, 1985 analysis is used for slug tests that exhibit a sinusoidal response due to inertial effects.


Moench, 1985 - Transient Flow to a Large-Diameter Well in an Aquifer With Storative Semiconfining Layers.
The Moench, 1985 analysis is very versatile and supports all three Hantush aquitard boundary types (Constant head, No Flow and Constant Head/No Flow) and allows leakage from above, below or both. It also supports a line source well or a finite diameter well including well bore storage and well bore skin.


Moench, 1997 - Flow to a well of finite diameter in a homogeneous, anisotropic water table aquifer
The Moench, 1997 analysis allows analysis of pump tests in unconfined aquifers in which well bore storage and/or well bore skin are a significant factor.


WinTran - WinTran is designed to be an easy-to-use model for simulating the fate and transport of dissolved contaminants in fully saturated groundwater systems


The WinTran model couples the steady-state groundwater flow model from WinFlow with a contaminant transport model. The transport model feels like an analytic model but is actually an embedded finite-element simulator. The software automatically constructs the finite-element transport so that you may quickly get answers to your groundwater problems.

New Functionality
Legend Wizard
One of the most common support issues has been setting up legends and we have made this process much easier. In Version 3, adding a legend is as simple as clicking the mouse in the view, clicking the Add->Legend menu and dragging a rectangle. The following wizard is activated to help in setting up the wizard. If you simply click the finish button, a legend will be created containing the pertinent parameters and will be located in the lower right corner of the graph or map.

To make a legend as in previous versions, select the Create empty legend radio button and click the Finish button; double click on the newly created legend box and set it up as you see fit.

Editing Legends on Screen
If you have created a legend using the legend wizard and have selected the Automatically adjust and locate legend option any changes made on screen will be automatically undone when the screen refreshes. The on screen editing features are for older legends, those created as empty legends using the wizard or those that have selected the Don't use this wizard for future editing option.

On screen manipulation now drills into legends no matter how deeply they are nested to allow the typical on screen manipulations to be performed. In addition, a context menu has been created for legends that allows for Cut/Copy/Paste/Select All/Delete/Add/Add to Legend operations within the legend.

Of particular note is the Add to Legend menu. When items have been selected in the main view, they can be added to the legend using this menu. In most cases, you will want to drag the object into the legend and position it before using this option. You can, however, attach items to the legend that are not located inside the legend. When the legend is moved, they maintain their position relative to the legend.

Line Calculations and Distance/Drawdown Graphs
A line calculation is simply a line dragged onto the map view in a Simulation or Flow Model document along which head/drawdown calculations will be made and a graph generated. If one of the end points of the line corresponds with a pumping well, a drawdown versus distance graph can be generated.

Line calculation elements appear on the map with similar characteristics to a line and, when the View->Well Data menu is checked, a view tab is added for the graph of drawdown versus distance.

3D Perspective
The 3D vertical tab contains the 3D perspective view of the hydraulic head or drawdown values. Contour lines can be optionally displayed as well. All the normal annotations can be added; however, the annotations are fixed in position in the view and are not moved/rotated when the 3D perspective is manipulated.

Selecting the 3D Manipulation menu from the edit field context menu allows the manipulation of the 3D view using the mouse and keyboard. Clicking and/or holding the left mouse button in the view causes the display to rotate in the direction of the cursor. Holding the Shift button while clicking and/or holding the left mouse button causes the display to move in the direction of the cursor. Clicking and/or holding the right mouse button causes the display to zoom in and zoom out. If the cursor is in the upper half of the view, it will zoom out. If the cursor is in the lower half of the view, it will zoom in. The amount of the zoom is controlled by how far the cursor is from the vertical center of the view.

The Reset 3D menu is used recenter the 3D perspective view. This is sometimes required when changes have been made via the Contour Options property sheet or on screen editing.
