Abstract

Abstract. A fully documented Galerkin finite‐element FORTRAN program is presented for solving the one‐dimensional, transient flow equation in unsaturated porous media. Material balance error summaries are presented to demonstrate accuracy of the numerical scheme. Comparison of our simulated results with other existing numerical solutions using the Galerkin scheme provided excellent agreement.
