Abstract

A three dimensional finite element model for fluid flow and transport in confined or unconfined aquifer F. Jacob*, J.M. Crolef, P. Lesaint*, J. Mania* "Laboratoire de calcul scientifique, ^Laboratoire de geologic structurale et appliquee, Universite de Franche-Comte, 25030 Besangon, France ABSTRACT A three dimensional finite element model was developed for the simulation of ground water flow and solute or energy transport in confined or unconfined aquifer. Density and viscosity was considered variable in space and in time as functions of concentration or temperature. Numerical implementation has been realized, in order to minimize computational time in respect with the most efficient methods. INTRODUCTION Actually it is more and more important to simulate or to predict pollution of the ground water by toxic contaminant or industrial settling. Development of computer allows to make some three dimensi
