Short Course Example Problems

The example application problems provided here are those presented during an introductory STOMP short course. They are intended to provide the student with a general overview of the code's capabilities and diversity. Each application is described through background text material, images of simulation results, and references to more detailed discussions. Additional exercises with solutions are also provided. The applications have been chosen to demonstrate the simulator's application over a range of scales from laboratory experiments to field deployments of remediation technologies and over a range of hydrologic systems from aqueous flow and transport to nonisothermal natural heat pipes to NAPL migrations with nonwetting fluid entrapment to frozen soil conditions. The problems are of increased complexity, ranging from simple one-dimensional saturated flow of a single phase, to problems describing flow and transport of several phases.
