Description
The parameter to be estimated is a factor with which the initial parameter
guess is multiplied.
X=p*X0 <=> p=X/X0
Here, p is the estimated parameter, X is the TOUGH2 parameter, and X0 is the
initial value of the TOUGH2 parameter. This option is useful to estimate a
scaling factor for variable initial and boundary conditions, or to determine
the mean of a quantity while maintaining ratios (e.g., if estimating a common
factor applied to all three permeability values in a model domain, the
anisotropy ratio remains constant). If the factor is lognormally distributed,
add command >>>> LOGARITHM or use command >>>> LOG(F).
Estimating a factor is opposed to estimating the parameter value directly
(command >>>> VALUE) or its logarithm (command >>>> LOGARITHM (p)).
Example
> PARAMETER
>> ABSOLUTE permeability
>>> MATERIAL: CLAY1 SAND1
>>>> estimate multiplication FACTOR, and maintain both the
anisotropy ratio within a layer as well as the permeability
ratio between clay and sand.
