Hydraulic Optimization – Methods & Codes
MODMAN – MODMAN is a FORTRAN computer program developed by GeoTrans, Inc. that adds optimization capability to the USGS finite-difference model for groundwater flow simulation in three dimensions, called MODFLOW96. The optimal solution maximizes or minimizes a user-defined objective function and satisfies all user-defined constraints.
MODOFC – MODOFC (MODFLOW Optimal Flow Control) is a FORTRAN computer program which determines optimal pumping solutions for groundwater flow control problems. MODOFC couples the USGS MODFLOW simulation program with optimization algorithms. MODOFC was developed by David P. Ahlfeld of the University of Massachusetts.
- MODFLIP – MODFLIP from Subterranean Research, Inc. is
applicable to steady flow optimization, linear programming, and linear mixed-binary
programming problems. MODFLIP couples the popular MODFLOW groundwater simulation
program with linear and mixed integer programming optimization.
