Abstract

The governing equations for modelling transport processes in reservoirs caused by the influence of temperature gradient are presented. Numeri- cal solution based on the finite element method illustrates the possibility of solving transport processes in simple and more complex domains. The influences of shape and size of the computational domain, various boundary conditions and the
