Mathematical Models for Reservoir Routing Analysis
Various mathematical models exist for the analysis of reservoir flood routing problems. This paper compares recent Runge-Kutta and Euler numerical techniques with the well known Puls approach...

Fate/Transport Modeling of Immiscible LNAPL in Unsaturated Aquifers
In the past ten years since enacting CERCLA and SARA regulations there is a lack of model to adequately address the fate/transport of immiscible constituents in groundwater systems. This...

3D-Simulation of the Twin Lake Tracer Test
The 1983 Twin Lake tracer test was simulated using a three-dimensional finite element model. The model was calibrated comparing calculated and measured piezometric heads as well as vertical...

A Review of Surface-Groundwater Interaction Models
Surface-water and groundwater systems are in continuous dynamic interaction. Processes such as infiltration from surface waters and precipitation, the discharge of groundwater to surface...
