GETFLOWS simulates Terrestrial Fluid-flow in geosphere. The “Terrestrial Fluids” represents the comprehensive fluid system which consists of surface water such as rivers and lakes, groundwater, and compressible fluids such as air and vapor. GETFLOWS enables fully coupled surface-subsurface water flow simulations and explains such fluid dynamics quantitatively and qualitatively.
The main features of the GETFLOWS are as follows:
The target area is represented by an arbitrary-shaped 3D grid block system in GETFLOWS simulator. GETFLOWS analyzes general fluid flow dynamics of water, gas, NAPL (Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid) and solid, such as soil and rock, for each grid block.
When the precipitation reaches the ground part of it infiltrates into the subsurface, flows as groundwater and partly seeps into to valleys. Then, it flow alone the mountain slopes forming streams. In the areas, where the rain is unable to infiltrate into the ground, it directly runs off as surface water. Such natural behavior of continuous flow of water in surface and subsurface can be simulated in GETFLOWS.
