Fundamental concepts for numerical simulation of contaminant transport and biodegradation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The partial differential equations that govern subsurface contaminant transport in the presence of biodegradation are usually too complex to solve analytically. Therefore, numerical solution methods are employed to provide approximate solutions to the equations. These numerical methods are based on replacement of the differential equations by an associated set of algebraic equations. These algebraic equations are then solved on a computer by standard matrix methods.
