MT3DMS is a modular three-dimensional transport model for the simulation of advection, dispersion, and chemical reactions of dissolved constituents in groundwater systems (Zheng, 1990). MT3DMS uses a modular structure similar to the structure utilized by MODFLOW. MT3DMS is used in conjunction with MODFLOW in a two step flow and transport simulation. Heads and cell-by-cell flux terms are computed by MODFLOW during the flow simulation and are written to a specially formatted file. This file is then read by MT3DMS and utilized as the flow field for the transport portion of the simulation.
MT3DMS is a newer version of the MT3D model distributed with earlier versions of GMS. MT3DMS differs from MT3D in that it allows for multi-species transport, supports additional solvers, and allows for cell-by-cell input of all model parameters.
A complete description of MT3DMS is beyond the scope of this reference manual. It is assumed that the reader has a basic knowledge of MT3DMS and has read the MT3DMS documentation (Zheng, 1990). Only the details of the GMS graphical interface to MT3DMS are described herein.
GMS supports MT3DMS as a pre- and post-processor. The input data for MT3DMS is generated by GMS and saved to a set of files. These files are then read by MT3DMS when MT3DMS is executed. MT3DMS can be launched from the GMS menu. The output from MT3DMS is then imported to GMS for post-processing.
A special version of MT3DMS is distributed with GMS. This version of MT3DMS has been modified to output GMS data set files.
The RT3D, SEAM3D and PHT3D models are special versions of MT3DMS that have been customized to simulate reactive transport problems. The interfaces to MT3DMS, RT3D, SEAM3D and PHT3D are all contained in the MT3D menu.
