A Practical Manual on Groundwater Modelling

image of A Practical Manual on Groundwater Modelling
This Practical Manual on Groundwater Modelling presents the basic theories of groundwater flow and contaminant transport as applied to the construction of numerical models. It covers the following areas:



• Basic principles of finite element methods as applied to groundwater problems (flow and transport)

• General procedures for constructing models

• Practical tracking methods for the solution of transport problems

• Illustrative examples and case studies



The manual is designed for practising hydrologists, environmental engineers and scientists who require a primer in groundwater modelling. It is also suitable for graduate students of groundwater hydrology.

Particle Tracking Methods

Particle tracking methods offer a valuable alternative to finite difference and finite element methods for simulating contaminant transport. In particle tracking, the distribution of a solute in the groundwater is represented by a finite number of particles, where each particle carried either a certain concentration or a certain fraction of the total mass. The particles are moved through the domain according to the velocity field, and their behaviour is observed.
