A two-Dimensional finite volume method for variable density flow and solute transport through saturated-unsaturated media
Liu, Fawang, Anh, Vo, & Turner, Ian (2003) A two-Dimensional finite volume method for variable density flow and solute transport through saturated-unsaturated media. In The proceeding of the International Symposium on Nonlinear Science and Application, Shanghai.
Extensive groundwater withdrawal has resulted in a
severe seawater intrusion problem in the Gooburrum
aquifers at Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia. Better
management strategies can be implemented by
understanding the seawater intrusion processes in those
aquifers. To study the seawater intrusion process in the
region, a two-dimensional density-dependent, saturated
and unsaturated flow and transport computational model
is used. The model consists of a coupled system of two
non-linear partial differential equations. The first
equation describes the flow of a variable-density fluid,
and the second equation describes the transport of
A two-dimensional control volume finite element
model is developed for simulating the seawater intrusion
into the heterogeneous aquifer system at Gooburrum.
The simulation results provide a realistic mechanism by
which to study the convoluted transport phenomena
evolving in this complex heterogeneous coastal aquifer.
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.
