Prediction of Contaminant Transport in Pasangan Groundwater Aquifer, Using Control Volume Model

M.B. Rahnama and G.A. Barani

For investigating the solute transport in groundwater aquifers, the governing equation of fluid movement through porous media was solved by the three dimensional numerical control volume methods using the three diagonal matrix algorithm. To test the model, it was applied to the examples used for the analytical methods in horizontal direction, in vertical direction. Comparisons of the analytical results with the obtained results show a good agreement. Also, to compare the present model with the finite difference model, the modular finite difference ground water flow model (MODFLOW) software developed by the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) was used; the results are close to each other. This model was applied to the Pasangan watershed in Ghom state, which is located in the center of Iran. The concentration of chloride (Cl-) was taken as the investigating property of the fluid (water). The model result was compared with the actual data of this watershed, which are close to each other. So, it is concluded that the present model can be a good potential to predict the contamination transport in groundwater aquifers and control the groundwater pollution crisis.
