Abstract

A transient, three-dimensional subsurface waste-disposal model has been developed to provide methodology to design and test waste-disposal systems. The model is a finite-difference solution to the pressure, energy, and mass-transport equations. Equation parameters such as viscosity and density are allowed to be functions of the equations ' dependent variables. Multiple user options allow the choice of x, y, and z cartesian or r and z radial coordinates, various finite-difference methods, iterative and direct matrix solution techniques, restart options , and various provisions for output display. The addition of well-bore heat and pressure-loss calculations to the model makes available to the ground-water hydrologist the most recent advances from the oil and gas reservoir engineering field.
