Abstract

A sensitivity analysis of the pollutant dispersion problem in porous media using dual reciprocity boundary element method is presented. In the governing dispersion equation, the time dependent term, convective terms and decay term are approximated using dual reciprocity method and Green's theorem is used to form boundary integral equations. A rectangular section of a fully saturated homogeneous isotropic porous media is considered for the sensitivity study. The aim of the sensitivity study is to determine the influence of various dual reciprocity boundary element model parameters on the accuracy and stability of the solution and field parameters on the dispersion process.
