Abstract

The finite element model developed in Part I is verified against field data and the results are compared with those obtained from a one-dimensional finite difference model. Two field examples are given: vertical flow in a clay soil with red cabbage, and two-dimensional flow in a complex layered and anisotropic situation. The results indicate that the finite element model is well suited for the treatment of complex and realistic field problems.
