This δH is to be compared to the total head variation of 1 meter along the mean flow path.
The 2D random seawater intrusion problem was solved on a 1000x1000 node grid. The total
CPU time for the 10 continuation steps was on the order of one day on a PC Intel Pentium-4
processor, in double precision.
Inside each continuation step, there are two interlooped solvers: (1) the inner loop is the
iterative DSCG solver (stopping criterion δH < ε =10-9 (m), and ITER ≤ 1000); (2) the outer
loop is the fixed point (Picard) iteration solver (stopping criterion δH < ε = 10-6 and
ITER ≤ 20). In Fig. 1(b), the average number of iterations within each continuation step is
18596. However the actual number of iterations per step increases with successive steps.
The problem is more difficult as σlnK increases.
The continuation algorithm, as well as file management and graphic tasks, have been
implemented as an option in the GUI application (BF-Py) under development for the
BigFlow code. The BF-Py applicati...
