Reactive Solute Transport Modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics and PHREEQC

Reactive solute transport modeling involves coupling nonlinear phenomena including subsurface flow and geochemical processes. Multiphysics simulation can provide useful solutions for activities such as radioactive waste disposal; mining, oil and gas; geothermal; and water resources assessment and management. This webinar will discuss interfacing COMSOL Multiphysics with PHREEQC for geochemical simulations. iCP, a Java® interface, combines both codes by using the COMSOL API and IPhreeqc dynamic library. Several application examples will be presented throughout the webinar, concluding with a Q&A session.
