The series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major subject headings called "Books" and further subdivided into sections and chapters. Section A of Book 6 is on ground-water modeling.
The unit of publication, the chapter, is limited to a narrow field of subject matters. This format allows flexibility in revision and publication as the need arises. Chapters 6A3, 6A4, and 6A5 are on the use of a particular transient finite-element numerical method for two-dimensional ground-water flow problems. These Chapters (6A3, 6A4, and 6A5) correspond to reports prepared on the finite-element model given the acronym MODE and designated as parts 1,2, and 3, respectively. Part 1 is on "model description and user"s manual," part 2 is on "derivation of finite-element equations and comparisons with analytical solutions," and part 3 is on "design philosophy and programming details." Parts 1 and 3 have been released as Open-File Reports (see References, Torak (1992 a, b)) pending publication as Chapters 6A3 and 6A5 respectively.
