Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learning outcome of the course is to extend students' competence in analytical and numerical modeling of hydraulic and transport processes in the geosphere. In addition to studying the theoretical principles of mathematical modeling of groundwater flow and solute and heat transport, the students will learn to use the available software tools in practice and apply them to issues in environmental and energy geotechnics.

Summary

The course is focused on the theoretical and practical aspects of analytical and numerical modeling of hydraulic and transport processes in the geosphere. Students will be acquainted with the theoretical principles of mathematical modeling of groundwater flow and transport of solutes and heat in the rock environment, including implementation of governing equations, initial and boundary conditions by various numerical methods (finite difference method, FEM). Part of the study is also the application of the selected software tool available at the Department of Geotechnics and Underground Engineering (FEFLOW, MODFLOW, MODPAT, MT3D, PEST, etc.) on the selected case study in relation to the solved problems within the doctoral study.

Subject syllabus:

1/ Model types. Physical and mathematical modeling - deterministic and stochastic models. Subdivision of deterministic models - analytical, semi-analytical, numerical. Numerical methods - finite element method, final differences. 2/ Types of models in terms of simulated processes - groundwater flow modeling in a saturated and unsaturated zone, flow in a domain with variable saturation. Transport processes - transport of solutes (advection, dispersion, sorption, degradation, chemical reactions), heat transport - convection, conduction. Governing equations of simulated processes. 3/ Methodological approach - creation of conceptual model, grid design, boundary and internal conditions, initial conditions. 4 / Steady state and transient models - specific modelling requirements (data inputs), time steps and periods. 5 / Calibration of mathematical models. Inverse models. Sensitivity analysis. 6 / Application of modeling of groundwater flow, transport of dissolved substances and heat in risk analyzes and feasibility studies.
