The aim of this example is to simulate the stationary groundwater flow in an anisotropic porous medium. In order to consider the permeability anisotropy, a 2-D numerical model is built which contains a higher permeability in the vertical direction than that in the horizontal direction. The aquifer is assumed saturated and stationary.
