Featured COMSOL Multiphysics Projects

Below are examples of our COMSOL Multiphysics simulation projects.

Model of groundwater flow across a rock vault for low and intermediate level radioactive waste:

This image depicts the water head in the waste compartments, flow streamlines, and hydraulic conductivity of the fractured rock surrounding the repository (isosurface plot).

Simulation of the reactive transport processes in compacted bentonite from a prototype experiment of a nuclear waste underground repository:

This model shows the unit fraction of sodium occupancy in the cation exchanger of the bentonite column after six months of hydration and heating.

Model of a pit lake flooding after the closure of a mine:

This image shows the water head distribution in a 3D hydrogeological model involving several geology strata, two rivers, and water recharge conditions.

Model of the large-scale dewatering of a mine, created using the Subsurface Flow Module:

This illustrates the steady-state groundwater pressure head as well as the hydrogeological impact produced by mine dewatering.
