Modeling of Contaminant Transport in Rivers with Emphasis on the Interaction with Movable Boundaries

by B. Westrich, Univ of Stuttgart, Germany,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling


The transport of dissolved and absorbed pollutants is simulated by a one-dimensional convection-diffusion model which particularly accounts for the exchange processes at the river bed and adjacent stagnant water zones. The results show the strong influence of the flow boundaries on the concentration development in space and time.
