Numerical Models in Groundwater Pollution

Overview

Mathematical models are powerful tools used in the prediction of pollutant movement. This book discusses the Finite Element Method (FEM) and Boundary Element Method (BEM), and takes a look at the advantages of these methods in groundwater hydrology. The combination of the BEM and the random-walk particle tracking method is also presented. The book includes computer programs, source code, and examples developed on the basis of the theoretical backgrounds of these methods. These Visual C++ programs are compatible ...
