PORFLOW-3D is an integrated finite difference model to simulate coupled transient or steady-state, multiphase, fluid flow, and heat, salinity, or chemical species transport in variably saturated porous or fractured, anisotropic and heterogeneous media. The program facilitates arbitrary sources or sinks in three-dimensional Cartesian or axisymmetric (cylindrical) geometry. The user interface is based on the FREEFORM language using simple English-like commands. The software includes the ARCPLOT graphic post-processor.
