Abstract: Guidelines are presented herein for using the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Adaptive Hydraulics/Hydrology (AdH) modeling software to model three-dimensional groundwater problems with constituent or heat transport utilizing pilot point specification. Pilot point specification is an auxiliary module intended to be a flexible method to specify spatially varying parameters that supersede the traditional uniform parameters in the model. Examples of such parameters are hydraulic conductivity, porosity, and mesh refinement. Spatial variation can be used to develop high-fidelity computer models. This document contains descriptions of the pilot point input cards and examples. The pilot point specification module is currently integrated into the AdH Groundwater code (kernel version), but can be extended to additional AdH physics modules as necessary. Input is currently manually generated with result viewable utilizing the open-source ParaView visualization software.
