flopy.modflow.mfwel Module

mfwel module. Contains the ModflowWel class. Note that the user can access the ModflowWel class as flopy.modflow.ModflowWel.

Additional information for this MODFLOW package can be found at the Online MODFLOW Guide.

class flopy.modflow.mfwel.ModflowWel(model, ipakcb=None, stress_period_data=None, dtype=None, extension='wel', options=None, unitnumber=None, filenames=None)

MODFLOW Well Package Class.

Parameters:

model : model object

The model object (of type flopy.modflow.mf.Modflow) to which this package will be added.

ipakcb : int

A flag that is used to determine if cell-by-cell budget data should be saved. If ipakcb is non-zero cell-by-cell budget data will be saved. (default is 0).

stress_period_data : list of boundaries, or recarray of boundaries, or

dictionary of boundaries Each well is defined through definition of layer (int), row (int), column (int), flux (float). The simplest form is a dictionary with a lists of boundaries for each stress period, where each list of boundaries itself is a list of boundaries. Indices of the dictionary are the numbers of the stress period. This gives the form of:

stress_period_data = {0: [

[lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux] ],

1: [

[lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux] ], ...

kper:

[ [lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux], [lay, row, col, flux] ]

}

Note that if the number of lists is smaller than the number of stress periods, then the last list of wells will apply until the end of the simulation. Full details of all options to specify stress_period_data can be found in the flopy3 boundaries Notebook in the basic subdirectory of the examples directory

dtype : custom datatype of stress_period_data.

If None the default well datatype will be applied (default is None).

extension : string

Filename extension (default is ‘wel’)

options : list of strings

Package options (default is None).

unitnumber : int

File unit number (default is None).

filenames : str or list of str

Filenames to use for the package and the output files. If filenames=None the package name will be created using the model name and package extension and the cbc output name will be created using the model name and .cbc extension (for example, modflowtest.cbc), if ipakcbc is a number greater than zero. If a single string is passed the package will be set to the string and cbc output names will be created using the model name and .cbc extension, if ipakcbc is a number greater than zero. To define the names for all package files (input and output) the length of the list of strings should be 2. Default is None.

Notes

Parameters are not supported in FloPy.

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> m = flopy.modflow.Modflow()
>>> lrcq = {0:[[2, 3, 4, -100.]], 1:[[2, 3, 4, -100.]]}
>>> wel = flopy.modflow.ModflowWel(m, stress_period_data=lrcq)

Attributes

mxactw (int) Maximum number of wells for a stress period. This is calculated automatically by FloPy based on the information in stress_period_data.
check(f=None, verbose=True, level=1)

Check package data for common errors.

Parameters:

f : str or file handle

String defining file name or file handle for summary file of check method output. If a sting is passed a file handle is created. If f is None, check method does not write results to a summary file. (default is None)

verbose : bool

Boolean flag used to determine if check method results are written to the screen

level : int

Check method analysis level. If level=0, summary checks are performed. If level=1, full checks are performed.

Returns:

None

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> m = flopy.modflow.Modflow.load('model.nam')
>>> m.dis.check()
static load(f, model, nper=None, ext_unit_dict=None, check=True)

Load an existing package.

Parameters:

f : filename or file handle

File to load.

model : model object

The model object (of type flopy.modflow.mf.Modflow) to which this package will be added.

nper : int

The number of stress periods. If nper is None, then nper will be obtained from the model object. (default is None).

ext_unit_dict : dictionary, optional

If the arrays in the file are specified using EXTERNAL, or older style array control records, then f should be a file handle. In this case ext_unit_dict is required, which can be constructed using the function flopy.utils.mfreadnam.parsenamefile.

Returns:

wel : ModflowWel object

ModflowWel object.

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> m = flopy.modflow.Modflow()
>>> wel = flopy.modflow.ModflowWel.load('test.wel', m)
plot(**kwargs)

Plot 2-D, 3-D, transient 2-D, and stress period list (MfList) package input data

Parameters:

**kwargs : dict

filename_base
: str

Base file name that will be used to automatically generate file names for output image files. Plots will be exported as image files if file_name_base is not None. (default is None)

file_extension
: str

Valid matplotlib.pyplot file extension for savefig(). Only used if filename_base is not None. (default is ‘png’)

mflay
: int

MODFLOW zero-based layer number to return. If None, then all all layers will be included. (default is None)

kper
: int

MODFLOW zero-based stress period number to return. (default is zero)

key
: str

MfList dictionary key. (default is None)

Returns:

axes : list

Empty list is returned if filename_base is not None. Otherwise a list of matplotlib.pyplot.axis are returned.

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> ml = flopy.modflow.Modflow.load('test.nam')
>>> ml.dis.plot()
to_shapefile(filename, **kwargs)

Export 2-D, 3-D, and transient 2-D model data to shapefile (polygons). Adds an attribute for each layer in each data array

Parameters:

filename : str

Shapefile name to write

Returns:

None

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> ml = flopy.modflow.Modflow.load('test.nam')
>>> ml.lpf.to_shapefile('test_hk.shp')
write_file()

Write the package file.

Returns:None
