Abstract: A one-dimensional finite element program has been developed for use on the IBM-PC as an aid to teaching groundwater hydrology to students. The program uses linear elements and the Galerkin weighted-residual method to form the global matrix. A variety of boundary conditions can be applied. Groundwater flow problems without any saltwater can also be studied. Students can use the program to learn several important concepts in groundwater flow and numerical analysis.
