Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling
is a valuable tool for assessing groundwater resources, understanding groundwater flow behaviour, and designing effective groundwater management strategies. When assessing groundwater, CFD modelling offers several key benefits:

  1. Flow Simulation: CFD can simulate the flow of groundwater through porous media, providing insights into flow patterns, velocities, and groundwater levels.
  2. Contaminant Transport: CFD can model the transport of contaminants in groundwater, helping to assess the spread of pollutants and design remediation strategies.
  3. Aquifer Characterization: CFD can be used to characterize aquifers by simulating pumping tests and analysing the response of groundwater levels to pumping.
  4. Well Design and Placement: CFD can optimize the design and placement of wells for groundwater extraction or injection, ensuring efficient water supply or remediation.
  5. Saltwater Intrusion: CFD can model saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers, helping to manage freshwater resources and prevent saltwater contamination.
  6. Environmental Impact Assessment: CFD can assess the environmental impact of groundwater extraction or contamination, aiding in environmental impact assessments and mitigation planning.
