# CRAFIT: A computer program for calibrating breakthrough curves of CRAFLUSH, a one-dimensional fracture flow and transport model

## Abstract

This computer note presents a program called CRAFIT, which automates trial and error curve fitting of breakthrough curves for CRAFLUSH, a one-dimensional fracture flow and transport code. CRAFIT is useful for modeling column experimental where the source function is well-known but fracture geometry and matrix are to be characterized. CRAFIT is demonstrated for curve fitting with three unknowns and five unknowns, and found a single best-fit solution for each case.
