The keyword $STORAGE enables to specify the storativity of a material i.e. the volumetric specific storage which is the volume of water that the aquifer releases from storage. This keyword can be used in the processes such as groundwater flow and liquid flow.


int double

In the following example, the first parameter defines a storage model type followed by the specific storage. The values indicate that the storage stays constant (first value = 1) with 0.00001 m-1 (second value).

Attention: For liquid flow processes (LIQUID_FLOW), the model value is the specific storage divided by fluid density and gravity acceleration constant in Pa-1.
