outline
Outline
  • Introduction
  • The combined HP1 model
  • Examples and Applications
introduction
Introduction
  • The migration of elements and contaminants in the subsurface is affected by a multitude of complex, interactive physical, chemical, mineralogical and biological processes.
  • All the processes are influenced by precipitation and evapotranspiration, changes of chemical composition or pH of soil and dissolution/precipitation of minerals.
objective
Objective
  • The combined HP1 model can simultaneously simulate variably-saturated transient water flow, multi-component solute transport, speciation and geochemical processes, including a variety of mixed equilibrium and kinetic reactions.

Mallants et al., 2008

slide5

Simulating water flow, transport and bio-geochemical reactions in environmental soil quality problems

HP1

Flow & transport model

HYDRUS-1D

Biogeochemical model

PHREEQC

Simulating the movement of water, heat and multiple solutes in variably-saturated heterogeneous or layered soils subject to a variety of atmospheric and other boundary conditions

Simulating the behavior of complex chemical systems, such as speciation, ion exchange, surface complexation, and mineral precipitation/dissolution

Mallants et al., 2008

coupling procedure
Couplingprocedure
  • Coupling method: non-iterative sequential approach (weak coupling)
  • Within a single time step:
    • First solve water flow equation and heat transport equation (HYDRUS);
    • Then solve convection-dispersion equation for solute transport for element master/primary species (inert transport) (HYDRUS)
    • Finally solve for each element, calculate speciations, equilibrium reactions, kinetic reactions, … (PHREEQC)

Jacques et al., 2003

hp1 model features
HP1 – model features
  • 1D FE water flow in variably-saturated media
  • 1D FE transport of multiple solutes by CDE
  • 1D heat transport
  • Mixed equilibrium / kinetic biogeochemical reactions
    • Aqueous speciation (reactions in pore-water)
    • Cation exchange (on clay, organic matter, …)
    • Surface complexation (e.g. iron oxyhydroxides)
    • Mineral dissolution / precipitation
    • Any kinetic reactions (oxidation/reduction, (bio)degradation, dissolution/precipitation)

Mallants et al., 2008

hp1 examples
HP1 examples
  • Transport of heavy metals (Zn2+, Pb2+, and Cd2+) subject to multiple cation exchange
  • Transport with mineral dissolution of amorphous SiO2 and gibbsite (Al(OH)3)
  • Heavy metal transport in a medium with a pH-dependent cation exchange complex
  • Infiltration of a hyperalkaline solution in a clay sample (kinetic precipitation-dissolution of kaolinite, illite, quartz, calcite, dolomite, gypsum, …)
  • Long-term transient flow and transport of major cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+, and Mg2+) and heavy metals (Cd2+, Zn2+, and Pb2+) in a soil profile.
  • Kinetic biodegradation of TNT (multiple degradation pathways)

Jacques et al., 2003

    • Root growth and water uptake
    • Microbiological growth
    • Degradation of organic matter with radionuclides/metal release

application fields of hp1
Application fields of HP1
  • Process Coupling and InteractionsInvestigate the impacts of multiple coupled biogeochemical reactions in the presence of complex flow fields and spatial heterogeneity.
  • Interpretation of Laboratory and Field DataProvide a useful framework for interpreting experimental results. Understand qualitative and quantitative trends and relationships present in the data.
  • Sensitivity AnalysisPermit the systematic evaluation of the impact of model parameters (both reactive and hydrogeological), initial conditions, and boundary conditions upon the model output.
  • Integration and SynthesisTool for integrating all of the knowledge obtained from simulation, sensitivity analyses, and laboratory and field experimentation.
