Numerical simulation of non-isothermal multiphase tracer transport in heterogeneous fractured porous media

  title={Numerical simulation of non-isothermal multiphase tracer transport in heterogeneous fractured porous media},
  author={Yu-Shu Wu and Karsten Pruess},
We have developed a new numerical method for modeling tracer and radionuclide transport through heterogeneous fractured rocks in a non-isothermal multiphase system. The model formulation incorporates a full hydrodynamic dispersion tensor, based on three-dimensional velocity ®elds with a regular or irregular grid in a heterogeneous geological medium. Two di€erent weighting schemes are proposed for spatial interpolation of three-dimensional velocity ®elds and concentration gradients to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
