    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers the specification of appropriate boundary conditions that are an essential part of conceptualizing and modeling ground-water systems. This guide describes techniques that can be used in defining boundary conditions and their appropriate application for modeling saturated ground-water flow model simulations.

    1.2 This guide is one of a series of standards on ground-water flow model applications. Defining boundary conditions is a step in the design and construction of a model that is treated generally in Guide D5447.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
