This is one of the two models from the blog post about heat transfer in the subsurface: Coupling Heat Transfer with Subsurface Porous Media Flow
The animated GIFs show the propagation of an isothermal cold front (295 K) for different groundwater velocities caused by different horizontal hydraulic gradients (0, 1, 5 mm/m).
Note: Poroelasticity is not included here.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Subsurface Flow Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
