Abstract

The main objective of the present work is to develop a Boundary Element formu- lation for the problem of methane gas migration through a porous media, and its release into the atmosphere. This formulation is used as a basis for a numerical model of the physical process; in this study the methane at the porous media is a consequence of the degradation of waste material at a landfill. 1 Introduction One of the most popular ways to dispose of domestic and industrial waste is to bury it under layers of soil, usually called landfill. A mayor concern derived from this disposing of waste is the generation of gases due to the degra
