BAC-GROUND has written a number of highly interactive, graphic, practical programs to aid in groundwater studies. Software has been written under the new Mac OS X and previously under the NeXTStep environment. Some of the programs have been written usi
ng Mathematica, another very powerful tool. Programs are designed to provide answers quickly and accurately. A brief description of the major programs available follows. Contact me for more details.
- One Dimensional Analytical Solute Transport model originally written on the NeXT and recently ported to the Mac OS X. The real-time graphical output make it very simple and useful to run. You have to
see it to believe it .
- Calculates the retardation coefficient and graphically shows the effect of the different parameters on the resulting retardation. Can also be used as an educational tool to clear-up technical concepts.
- A groundwater mounding model written using Mathematica. An accurate implementation of Hantush's (WWR, 1967) mounding equations. Can calculate the full shape of the curves (not just the peak) as a function of t
- Capture zone model written using Mathematica, shows the area that will flow into a recovery well given site aquifer parameters. Easily modified to specific site conditions.
- Calculates the flow into a trench or other excavation. Written using Mathematica and as with all other programs very easily modifiable.
SiteMaps, CrossSections and FenceDiagrams
- Using Mathematica, 2D site maps or cross-sections and 3D fence diagrams included site maps can easily be drawn, rotated, and animated. This is very helpful to better visualize hydrological and geological data
with respect to the site features.
- I have many other capabilities for graphics, internet, computations, and other analyses that may of interest. Contact me regarding your specific needs.
- Currently I have been studying WebObjects, Object Oriented C, and Java using such tools as Interface Builder and Project Builder in the Mac OS X Server system. Ask me about these very powerful tools.
