Modeling Darcian and Non-Darcian Flow in Porous Media
Get an introduction to the theory behind modeling flow in porous media, including the Kozeny–Carman, Forchheimer, Ergun, Burke–Plummer, and Navier–Stokes equations.
Analyzing the Impact of a Melting Frozen Inclusion
One example of the effects of climate change is the melting of permafrost in northern boreal regions. In this blog post, we show an example of a melting frozen inclusion in a porous medium.
Integration of Geological Structures into Regional-Scale Groundwater Models
To study the dynamics of hydraulic processes at different scales, geotechnical researchers need to be able to integrate complex geological structures into their hydrogeological models.
Simulating Multiphase Flow in Porous Media with a Low Permeable Lens
Modeling phase transport helps you study the multiphase flow through a porous medium (such as groundwater through soil).
Predicting Solute Transport in Groundwater Using Simulation
In order for groundwater to be useful for irrigation and drinking, we need to understand how its various solutes move through the water. The Subsurface Flow Module includes features for this.
Computing Porosity and Permeability in Porous Media with a Submodel
Porous materials have complex geometries and may therefore be difficult to model. Setting up a microscale submodel is a useful approach to find the porosity and permeability of the medium.
How to Use the Well Feature in Subsurface Flow Models
The Well feature makes it easier to set up and mesh well geometries for subsurface flow modeling. Learn how to take advantage of this feature’s settings and capabilities.
Studying the Artificial Ground Freezing Method with Simulation
Artificial ground freezing (AGF) is a valuable process in the construction industry. Researchers from China modeled groundwater flow to optimize an artificial ground freezing (AGF) process.
