CE 7240 - Theory of Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport


Provides a theoretical framework for understanding fluid flow and contaminant transport in porous media. Topics include the properties of a porous medium, including types of phases, soil and clay mineralogy, surface tension and capillarity, soil surface area, and soil organic-matter composition; the derivation of the general equations for multi-phase fluid flow and multi-species solute transport; and the fundamentals of the fate and transport processes of organic pollutants in ground-water systems, including advection, dispersion, diffusion, sorption, hydrolysis, and volatilization. Prerequisite: CE 6240 or equivalent.
