Abstract

The paper proposes a model for the coupled and partially uncoupled analysis of groundwater flow and salt dispersion and convection based on a Eulerian-Lagrangian approach for the contamination problem combined with a traditional finite element method for the flow problem. Unlike the schemes developed by Pinder and Cooper and Sanford and Konikow, the present approach implements a 'single step reverse tracking' technique similar to the one introduced by Neuman and Baptista et al.. The overall model is implemented in a FORTRAN code called CUNEO.
