About this book

Mathematical models are powerful tools used in the prediction of pollutant movement. This book discusses the Finite Element Method (FEM) and Boundary Element Method (BEM), and takes a look at the advantages of these methods in groundwater hydrology. The combination of the BEM and the random-walk particle tracking method is also presented. Computer programs, source code, and examples developed on the basis of the theoretical backgrounds of these methods can be accessed online. These Visual C++ programs are compatible with the Windows platform.


Introduction.- Basic Equations of Groundwater Flow.- Basic Equations of Transport of Pollutants in Porous Media.- Weighted Residuals Method.- Mathematical Models of Groundwater Flow.- Mathematical Models of Transport of Miscible Pollutants.- Comparison of Properties of All the Methods.- Examples of Use of Models in Practice
