The Dissolution and Transport of Radionuclides From Used Nuclear Fuel in an Underground Repository

[1]University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada
[2]Nuclear Waste Management Organization, Toronto, ON, Canada

In the Canadian concept for a deep geological repository for used nuclear fuel, the used fuel bundles are placed in containers consisting of an inner steel vessel surrounded by a copper shell. The filled containers are placed in excavated tunnels or boreholes and surrounded by a compacted bentonite clay buffer material. In the event of container failure, the rate of migration of radionuclides ...

Matching 4D Porous Media Fluid Flow GeoPET Data With COMSOL Multiphysics Simulation Results

We apply COMSOL Multiphysics for reproducing our experimental observations of fluid flow and transport processes in geological media. Our experimental GeoEPT-method allows the 4D monitoring of transport processes in geological material on laboratory scale. Explicitly we import “realistic structures” from geologic samples scanned by means of computer tomography (CT) as stl-files into COMSOL ...

Assessment of Spatial Variably Saturated Flow by Irrigation Moisture Sensors in 2-Dimensions using the COMSOL Multiphysics 4.1

This paper reports on the application of COMSOL Multiphysics’ Richard\'s Equation Interface in the assessment of irrigation moisture sensors for detecting the level of water saturation in a spatial variably saturated soil. The Richard\'s Equation (in COMSOL) provides the interface which automates the van Genuchten equation. A hypothetical soil column 4m by 4m was set up with seven irrigation ...

Impact Assessment of Hydrologic and Operational Factors on the Efficiency of Managed Aquifer Recharge Scheme

Due to increased demands on groundwater accompanied by increased drawdowns (ca. 2-3 meters/year), technologies that use alternative water resources have been suggested for Dhaka City, Bangladesh. Preliminary studies show that managed aquifer recharge (MAR) would help in optimal use of available water resources and to reduce adverse effects of pumping in the Dupitila aquifer of the city. In this ...

A Semplified Model for the Evolution of a Geothermal Field

The problem is to understand how a geothermal field can evolve from a water dominated state into a vapor dominated one. A first answer to this question is given by a simplified mathematical model of the dynamics of a geothermal field in which the geothermal fluid is entirely composed by pure H2O. We considered a 1-D geometry and we developed a dynamic model that presents a clear interface ...

Elastoplastic Deformation in a Wedge-Shaped Plate Caused by a Subducting Seamount

M. Ding[1], J. Lin[2]
[1]MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography, Cambridge, MA, USA
[2]Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA, USA

We used COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3 to simulate the 2D elastoplastic deformation and plastic strain in a wedge-shaped plate above a subducting interface. The modeling results reveal that a pair of conjugate normal faults would first appear in the thinner part of the plate. Subsequently, a second pair of conjugate thrust faults would form in the thicker part of the plate. The duration of the seamount ...

3D Simulations of an Injection Test Done Into an Unsaturated Porous and Fractured Limestone

[3]GEOAZUR, Valbonne, France

We have developed a numerical model to represent the effect of injection test in unsaturated porous and fractured rock mass. The test was conducted at the LSBB (Laboratoire Souterrain à Bas Bruit) site close to Rustrel, Vaucluse, France in the field of the French ANR project called “HPPP-CO2”. The results underline the impact of fractures on the hydro-mechanical response of the rock-mass. Indeed ...

微波加热煤岩裂隙变形的电-热-固耦合模型

管伟明 [1], 聂欣 [1],
[1] 新疆大学,乌鲁木齐,新疆,中国

为研究不同加热方式下煤岩内部裂隙在热力耦合作用下的变形特征,建立了微波和常规加热两种数值模型,考查了不同温度场分布特征下裂隙周边应力应变场的变化过程。研究结果表明:微波加热,温度场分布具有内高外低的特征,此时裂隙周边分布的应力多为压应力,且数值较大,裂隙边界位移表现为向内收缩;常规加热,温度场分布具有外高内低的特性,此时裂隙周边分布应力多为拉应力,但量值较低,裂隙边界位移表现为向外扩张;热源越靠近裂隙压应力越明显,反之拉应力明显。

On Boundary Conditions for CSEM Finite Element Modeling, I

J. Park[1], T. Bjornara[1], H. Westerdahl[2], and E. Gonzalez[2]
[1]Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI), Oslo, Norway
[2]StatoilHydro Research Center, Norway

In this study, we propose an absorbing boundary domain (or condition), which is really simple but still efficient for the 2.5D finite element (FE) analysis. The main application is to simulate the electromagnetic (EM) waves related to the marine controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) method, where the EM wave propagates with extremely low frequency in the conductive media. In the near future, ...

Modeling of the Heat Transfer Between a CO2 Sequestration Well and the Surrounding Geological Formation

In a carbon sequestration system CO2 would be pumped down a well and into a reservoir at supercritical temperatures and pressures. An important consideration is the long term stability of the reservoir. The goal of these simulations is to thermally model the injection well and investigate the temperature gradient developed in the cap rock. Ultimately, results from this study will lead to an ...
