About this book

Modeling of flow and transport in groundwater has become an important focus of scientific research in recent years. Most contributions to this subject deal with flow situations, where density and viscosity changes in the fluid are neglected. This restriction may not always be justified. The models presented in the book demonstrate immpressingly that the flow pattern may be completely different when density changes are taken into account. The main applications of the models are: thermal and saline convection, geothermal flow, saltwater intrusion, flow through salt formations etc. This book not only presents basic theory, but the reader can also test his knowledge by applying the included software and can set up own models.


Introduction * Density and other Water Properties * Analytical Description * Numerical Modeling (Fast-C(2D)) * Steady Convection * Special Topics in Convection * Oscillatory Convection * Horizontal Heat and Mass Transfer * Elder Experiment * Geothermal Flow (Yusa's Example) * Saltwater Intrusion (Henry's Example) * Saltwater Upconing * Flow Across a Salt-Dome * Desert Sedimentary Basins * Concluding Remark * References * Appendix I: Structure of Input and Output Files * Index.
