Abstract

Modeling groundwater flow and contaminant transport for practical problems usually involves the application of numerical solution techniques. This usually requires solutions to large algebraic equations, because of the multi-dimensional character of ground water flow and the need for high resolution representation of hydraulic and geochemical heterogeneity. The number of computations involved can be substantial and solving them on a serial computer can take an unreasonably long time. The random walk particle tracking contaminant transport model RWPT is solved utilizing a SGI Power Challenge multiprocessor to show the potential of such computers in contaminant transport modeling applications.
