BIOSLURP - Multiphase Hydrocarbon Vacuum Enhanced Recovery & Transport
BIOSLURP is an areal finite-element model to simulate three-phase (water, oil and gas) flow and multi-component transport in ground water in the unsaturated zone gas phase. Currently the most advanced model of its kind, BIOSLURP can be used to optimize the recovery of LNAPL, water, and gas by minimizing NAPL entrapment in the saturated/unsaturated zones, and simultaneously simulate multispecies aqueous and gas phase transport in unconfined aquifers. BIOSLURP can also simulate coupled flow of water and LNAPL with a static atmospheric gas phase, as well as the transport in ground water.
BIOSLURP simulates heterogeneous, anisotropic porous media or fractured media. It allows use of isoparametric elements to accurately represent material and physical/hydraulic boundaries. BIOSLURP can be used to design NAPL recovery and hydraulic containment systems for the free phase hydrocarbon plume and dissolved phase plume under complex hydrogeological conditions. Bioslurping (vacuum enhanced recovery) increases gradients in water and oil potentials with minimal fluctuations in the fluid tables and thus helps to reduce volume of residual product and enhance free product recovery.
BIOSLURP KEY FEATURES
The following parameters are needed if transport is simulated:
BIOSLURP USER INTERFACE
Graphical user interface in Windows 95/98/2000/NT. Interface includes a mesh generator/graphical editor which allows DXF site map import and highly irregular geometry.
BIOSLURP REQUIREMENTS: (1,500 nodes) Windows 95/98/2000/NT and 16 MB RAM.
