A TOUGHREACT training course will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California, November 2 – 4, 2016. Note that space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
TOUGHREACT is a numerical simulation program for chemically reactive non-isothermal flows of multiphase fluids in porous and fractured media. The program was developed by introducing reactive chemistry into the multiphase flow code TOUGH2 V2. Interactions between mineral and fluids can occur under local equilibrium or kinetic rates. Multiple gas species can be transported and undergo equilibrium gas-water reactions. Porosity, permeability, and capillary pressure changes can be coupled to mineral precipitation and dissolution reactions.
A comprehensive user’s guide is available, including worked sample problems addressing geothermal reservoirs and hydrothermal systems, nuclear waste isolation, groundwater quality, sequestration of carbon dioxide in saline aquifers, and supergene copper enrichment.
