A PRACTICAL APPROACH FOR MODELING MATRIX DIFFUSION EFFECTS IN REMCHLOR
Falta, R.
ESTCP Project ER-201426, 2018

The objective of this project was to develop practical and efficient mathematical methods for simulating the effects of matrix diffusion in groundwater transport and remediation models. These methods will apply to various types of heterogeneous settings, including fractured porous media and sites with extensive low permeability layers and lenses. The new mathematical methods can then be implemented in the U.S. EPA groundwater remediation screening model REMChlor to develop a new generation model that considers matrix diffusion in the plume: REMChlor-MD. The following project materials have been completed: User's Manual (119 pp); REMChlor-MD Toolkit (64-bit zip file); and REMChlor-MD Toolkit (32-bit zip file). https://www.serdp-estcp.org/Program-Areas/Environmental-Restoration/Contaminated-Groundwater/Persistent-Contamination/ER-201426
