Optimal Groundwater Remediation * Executive Summary Taren Blue**, Laura Place**, Miguel Bagajewicz University of Oklahoma Chemical Engineering *This work was done as part of the capstone chemical engineering class at the University of Oklahoma **Capstone undergraduate students This report is an exercise in the use of computational fluid dynamics and mathematical modeling to analyze the remediation process of groundwater. The purpose of this model is to minimize contaminants in an aquifer while minimizing cost. The mathematical model involves differing well configurations, pumping rates, and the use of fluid flow characteristics to evaluate the concentration profiles in the aquifer. This model builds on previous two dimensional models by adding simulations in Fluent flow simulation software in order to create a three dimensional model, and by investigating dynamic optimization through changing well configuration with time.
