APPLICATION OF THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD TO FIELD DRAINAGE PROBLEMS. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A finite element solution to the Richards equation for combined saturated-unsaturated flow is applied to four field drainage problems. Three methods of representing drainage tubes in the finite element grid are demonstrated. Simulation examples are included.
