suGWFoam: Richards equation solver for porous media flows
Hi all,

I have developed a Richards equation solver on OpenFOAM. The solver has a name of "suGWFoam", which stands for "saturated-unsaturated groundwater flow solver using OpenFOAM".

I wrote the solver because I want to solve groundwater flows and its interaction with surface water, such as river and coastal flows. But I tried to make it more general. It is essentially a Richards equation solver.

The nice thing about OpenFOAM is that you can easily couple suGWFoam with other solvers. This is sometime not necessarily an easy task for other porous media code.

The code and test cases can be downloaded from my website.]]

I have a technical report explaining some of things in the code. It can also be downloaded from my website. The report was based on a journal manuscript under review.
