Numerical Schemes Applicable in Contaminant Hydrology Calculations

Hillel Rubin

KGS Open File Report 1994-7


This report concerns the development and use of various types of finite difference numerical schemes for the simulation of basic cases of aquifer contamination. The contaminant concentration is prescribed at the aquifer boundary or the penetrating contaminant flux is prescribed at that boundary. The study addresses to a hierarchy of possible approximate approaches that can be useful in some classes of contaminant hydrology problems. The aquifer is represented by a simplified conceptual model allowing very basic simplifications and tests of the numerical schemes. The numerical schemes developed in this study, can easily be modified and extended to cases that are more complicated than those considered in the present study.
