As of MODFLOW-2000 version 1.11, the Flow and Head Boundary (FHB) Package
includes support for the Layer Property Flow (LPF) and Hydrogeologic Unit
Flow (HUF) Packages. Addition of this support requires clarification of
the explanation of the IFHBSS variable in Leake and Lilly (1997, p. 12).
The revised explanation follows.
IFHBSS is the FHB steady-state option flag. If the simulation includes any
transient-state stress periods, the flag is read but not used; in this case,
specified-flow, specified-head, and auxiliary-variable values will be
interpolated for steady-state stress periods in the same way that values are
interpolated for transient stress periods. If the simulation includes only
steady-state stress periods, the flag controls how flow, head, and auxiliary-
variable values will be computed for each steady-state solution.
If IFHBSS = 0, values of flow, head, and auxiliary variables will be those
specified for the starting time of the simulation. This results in use of
he first value in arrays FLWRAT, SBHED, and AuxVar for each respective
boundary cell.
If IFHBSS does not = 0, values of flow, head, and auxiliary variables will
be interpolated in the same way that values are computed for transient
simulations.
