Project Title

Suitability of higher modeling approach for reactive solute transport through a heterogeneous porous medium: experimental and numerical study.
This project aims to identify a suitable model to simulate the experimental data filtered through a heterogeneous porous medium. The study will be helpful in proposing the most suitable model, for similar transport conditions. In addition, it is a novel approach in which comprehensive evaluation of four different models will be implemented, and it will lead to concluding whether a complex or basic modeling approach should be employed.
This project also focuses on developing a high-resolution comprehensive dataset of reactive, non-reactive, and heavy metals chemical transport through heterogeneous porous mediums for a wider peclet number range. Two types of heterogeneous porous medium will be considered, stratified porous medium, which is an elementary heterogeneity, and heterogeneous soil column, which mimics the field conditions to those, found in natural soil.
