SUTRA and related programs (SutraSuite)
The software referenced on this web page is known collectively as SutraSuite. It includes the SUTRA groundwater model and a number of utilities for pre- and post-processing for simulations in two or three spatial dimensions (2D or 3D). Users are encouraged to read the SutraSuite Release Notes (ReleaseNotes_SutraSuite.pdf), which give an overview of the SutraSuite software and offer advice on how to get started using SUTRA and its associated utilities. The SutraSuite Release Notes are included with the SUTRA, SutraPrep, and SutraPlot installations released September, 2003 or later. They can also be downloaded separately using the link below.
The SutraSuite Online User Reference (SOUR) web site provides a convenient, interactive source of information about theoretical and practical aspects of SUTRA simulation. It includes news, advice on how to get started using SutraSuite, an overview of the software, a gallery of SUTRA simulation results, answers to frequently asked questions, a glossary, in-depth discussions of selected topics, and technical support information, including a troubleshooting guide.
To ensure compatibility between the various SutraSuite codes and associated example problems, users are encouraged to download and use the most up-to-date releases. For each of the codes below, the most up-to-date version appears at the top of the list.
