Abstract

MISER (Michigan soil-vapor extraction remediation model): development of a parallel environmental remediation application code J. R. Lang*, J. K. Landrunf, C. D. Drummond*, L. M. Abriola* & Q. F. Stout^ ^Dept. of Civil and Environ. Engin., Uni. of Michigan., USA *Dept. of Elect. Engin. and Computer Sci., Univ. of Michigan, USA Abstract A multidisciplinary research effort was undertaken to develop a parallel application code based on an existing serial application. MISER is a state of the art environmental remediation simulator designed to model the physical, chemical, and biological interactions occurring in field scale soil vapor extraction (SVE) and bioventing (BV) systems. The simulator is based on a series of equations describing multiphase flow, multicomponent advective diffusive transport, and bioreaction. These equations can be highly nonlinear due to the nature of the bioreaction terms, constitutive relationships, and material properties. Rate limited mass
