Unformatted text preview: one of the nodes listed for the well, or if the intake location is specified by elevation and the elevation is above the top
of the open interval, then the intake location will be assumed to occur above the first active node associated with the multinode well (that is, the node closest to the land surface or to the wellhead). If Qlimit > 0:
2f. Data: Hlim QCUT {Qfrcmn Qfrcmx}
Hlim
is the limiting water level (head) in the well, which is a minimum for discharging wells and a
maximum for injection wells. For example, in a discharging well, when hWELL falls below hlim,
the flow from the well is constrained.
QCUT Qfrcmn Qfrcmx is an integer flag that indicates how pumping limits Qfrcmn and Qfrcmx will be specified. If
pumping limits are to be specified as a rate (L3/T), then set QCUT > 0; if pumping limits are
to be specified as a fraction of the specified pumping rate (Qdes), then set QCUT < 0. If there
is not a minimum pumping rate below which the pump becomes inactive, then set QCUT = 0.
is the minimum pumping rate or fraction of original pumping rate (a choice that depends on
QCUT) that a well must exceed to remain active during a stress period. The absolute value
of Qfrcmn must be less than the absolute value of Qfrcmx (defined next). Only specify if
QCUT ≠ 0.
is the minimum pumping rate or fraction of original pumping rate that must be exceeded
to reactivate a well that had been shut off based on Qfrcmn during a stress period. The 50 Revised MultiNode Well (MNW2) Package for MODFLOW GroundWater Flow Model absolute value of Qfrcmx must be greater than the absolute value of Qfrcmn. Only specify
if QCUT ≠ 0.
Note 7: Only specify dataset 2f if the value of Qlimit in dataset 2b is positive. Do not enter fractions as percentages. For
example, if QCUT < 0, and the well must exceed 80 percent of the original pumping rate to remain active, then enter a
value of “0.8” for Qfrcmn. If QCUT > 0, then the rates specified for Qfrcmn and Qfrcmx follow the sign convention for
MODFLOW; that is, for discharging wells the rate should be negative, and for recharging (injection) wells the rate should
be positive. If PUMPCAP > 0:
2g. Data: Hlift LIFTq0 LIFTqmax HWtol
Hlift
is the reference head (or elevation) corresponding to the discharge point for the well. This is
typically at or above the land surface, and can be increased to account for additional head
loss due to friction in pipes.
LIFTq0 is the value of lift (total dynamic head) that exceeds the capacity of the pump. If the calculated
lift equals or exceeds this value, then the pump is shut off and discharge from the well ceases. LIFTqmax is the value of lift (total dynamic head) corresponding to the maximum pumping (discharge)
rate for the pump. If the calculated lift is less than or equal to LIFTqmax, then the pump will
operate at its design capacity, assumed to equal the userspecified value of Qdes (in dataset
4a). LIFTqmax will be associated with the value of Qdes in the first stress period in which
Qdes for the well is less than 0.0. HWtol is a minimum absolute value of change in the computed water level in the well allowed
between successive iterations; if the value of hWELL changes from one iteration to the next
by a value smaller than this tolerance, then the value of discharge computed from the head
capacity curves will be locked for the remainder of that time step. It is recommended that
HWtol be set equal to a value approximately one or two orders of magnitude larger than the
value of HCLOSE, but if the solution fails to converge, then this may have to be adjusted. Note 8: LIFTq0 and LIFTqmax define the two end points of the performance curve (headcapacity curve) for the pump
installed in the well. One or more additional intermediate points on the curve must be defined below in dataset 2h. The
model will use linear interpolation to estimate values between defined data points. The number of additional data points on
the curve (and lines in dataset 2h) must correspond to the value of PUMPCAP for this well (where PUMPCAP ≤ 25). The data
entered are typically provided by the pump manufacturer. The performance curves will only be applied for stress periods in
which Qdes < 0.0 and CapMult > 0 (see dataset 4a). If PUMPCAP > 0:
2h. Data: LIFTn Qn
LIFTn
is a value of lift (total dynamic head) that corresponds to a known value of discharge (Qn) for
the given pump, specified as the second value in this line.
Qn is the value of discharge corresponding to the height of lift (total dynamic head) specified
previously on this line. Sign (positive or negative) is ignored. Note 9: Repeat 2h PUMPCAP times. That is, the number of lines (records) in dataset 2h must correspond to the value of
PUMPCAP for this well. Enter data in order of decreasing lift (that is, start with the point corresponding to the highest value
of total dynamic head) and increasing discharge. The discharge value for the last data point in the sequence must be less than
the value of LIFTqmax. The data entered are typically provid...
