A combined simulation-optimization model for designing a pump-and-treat
groundwater remedial system that constrains the advective component of
contaminant transport is described.
At many sites, data are insufficient to
develop an advective-dispersive model and simulation capability may be limited
to groundwater flow and advective transport (particle tracking).
In the past,
when a full transport model has been unavailable, the groundwater quality
management problem has been addressed by constraining hydraulic heads to
force groundwater to flow toward extraction wells.
The imposition of these
constraints implies knowledge of the size and shape of the capture zone; such a
stipulation may overconstrain the problem and may not lead to the most
In the advect...
