Mathematical models are the effective tool to solve different tasks pr edicting pollutant movement. The finite difference method is the oldes t method, but still remains widely used in hydrogeological practice. H owever, this method is not very useful to construct the new transport models because it cannot approximate the shape of remediation elements exactly.

Overview

Mathematical models are the effective tool to solve different tasks pr edicting pollutant movement. The finite difference method is the oldes t method, but still remains widely used in hydrogeological practice. H owever, this method is not very useful to construct the new transport models because it cannot approximate the shape of remediation elements exactly. Therefore this book is concerned with the FEM (Finite Elemen t Method) and BEM (Boundary Element Method), and with the comparison o f advantages of these methods in groundwater hydrology. The combinatio n of the BEM and the random-walk particle tracking method, which seems to be a very useful tool to model the spread of pollution in groundwa ter, are also presented. The computer programs have been developed on the basis of the theoretical backgrounds of these methods. They use th e Visual C++ programming language for Windows 95/NT platform and will be included in the book.
