Numerical simulation for solute transport in fractal porous media
A modified Fokker-Planck equation with continuous source for solute transport in fractal porous media is considered. The dispersion term of the governing equation uses a fractional-order derivative and the diffusion coefficient can be time and scale dependent. In this paper, numerical solution of the modified Fokker-Planck equation is proposed. The effects of different fractional orders and fractional power functions of time and distance are numerically investigated. The results show that motions with a heavy tailed marginal distribution can be modelled by equations that use fractional-order derivatives and/or time and scale dependent dispersivity.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
