Abstract

In the present paper, the Eulerian-Lagrangian localized adjoint method (ELLAM) formulation developed by Younes et al. (Advances in Water Resources 29:1056-1074, 2006) is combined with the sequential noniterative approach to accurately simulate 2D multicomponent reactive transport in saturated/ unsaturated porous media. The performance and accuracy of the developed model, named ELLAM-REACT, are compared against those of an existing numerical model based on a combination of discontinuous Galerkin and multipoint flux approximation methods (DGMPFA-REACT). Three studied test cases, dealing with reactive transport in saturated and unsaturated porous media and involving chemical reactions with only aqueous species or both fixed and aqueous species, show the superiority of the ELLAM-REACT model compared to the DGMPFA-REACT model.
