The use of mathematical modelling for investigation of the efficiency of existing monitoring sites for the impact of SO(2) emissions from power stations in the state of Kuwait is described. The Industrial Source Complex Short Term (ISCST3) model is utilised to obtain the spatial and temporal variations of SO(2) over residential areas. Statistical comparison(More)
The tidal hydrodynamics and effluent distribution in estuaries involve a complicated range of solute transport phenomena modelled by partial differential equations. Therefore, the quantitative estimation of the risks of water and soil contamination of coastal areas as a result of polluted estuary flows, or effects of the effluent input on the chemical(More)
Air pollution is a major environmental health problem, affecting developed and developing countries around the world. Increasing amounts of potentially harmful gases and particulate matter are being emitted into the atmosphere on a global scale, resulting in damage to human health and the environment. Petroleum-related air pollutants can have a wide variety(More)
A space-time finite element discretization method for unsteady transport phenomena is formulated using a variational multiscale finite element scheme. The described discretization is based on the utilization of bubble function enriched finite elements. The scheme is applied to model unsteady diffusion and convection-diffusion equations. It is shown that any(More)
This paper presents an optimum technique based on the least squares method for the derivation of the bubble functions to enrich the standard linear finite elements employed in the formulation of Galerkin weighted-residual statements. The element-level linear shape functions are enhanced with supplementary polynomial bubble functions with undetermined(More)
The interfaces between free (e.g., groundwater) and porous (e.g., soil) flow zones in the subsurface represent important transition zones across which many important transfer/exchange processes occur. The understanding of these interactive phenomena and the way these regions behave in combination is, therefore, critical for management of subsurface water(More)
Free and porous flow of water in lands often occurs in combination under different physical circumstances. To model such configurations, open and porous flow regions need to be studied independently and also to integrate them through well-posed mathematical formulations. This paper presents a computational investigation (modelling and simulation) on flow of(More)
The present paper deals with the impact of surface flow on hydrodynamic conditions in saturated underground domains. A three dimensional finite element scheme has been used to simulate underground flow resulting from the flow of water over a saturated land. The results clearly show the effects of the surface flow on the hydrodynamic conditions of the(More)
