Water Grids

In Settle3, any number of groundwater grids can be defined, and the grids can be applied at different stages.

To define a Groundwater Grid:

  1. Select Edit Groundwater Grids from the Groundwater menu.
  2. Enter the x,y-locations and water table depth values, and click OK to close the dialog.
  3. Select Soil Groundwater Properties from the Groundwater menu.
  4. Select which materials you want to assign the grid to, and click OK to close the dialog.

Grid points can be defined at any x,y-location, and can easily be assigned to the borehole locations by using the Import borehole locations option.

At each grid point, you enter a water depth. Between grid points the water level is interpolated, and there are five interpolation methods available:

  • Inverse Distance
  • Thin-Plate Spline
  • Chugh
  • Local Thin-Plate Spline
  • TIN Triangulation

See the Interpolation Methods topic for more information.

Groundwater grids can also be imported or exported. Supported file formats include *.pwp, *.txt, *.csv, and *.prn files.


For information on how excavations affect the groundwater distribution defined using a Water Grid, see the Excavations and Groundwater topic.
