Abstract: A newly developed computational methodology for simulating the groundwater flows in multi-layered aquifer is presented. The model is based on the finite element method following the Galerkin's approach. It can correctly describe the basic physical characteristics of the aquifer as well as adequately predict the trend of groundwater flows under realistic external influences. It can be widely applied to steady of transient, confined, phreatic, leaky, or non-leaky aquifers with single or multiple layered structure.
