It takes just a few minutes to build your first groundwater flow model with PMWIN. First, create a groundwater model by choosing New Model from the File menu. Next, determine the size of the model grid by choosing Mesh Size from the Grid menu. Then, specify the geometry of the model and set the model parameters, such as hydraulic conductivity, effective porosity etc. Finally, perform the flow simulation by choosing MODFLOW > Run... from the Models menu.
