Contaminant Transport Module


Model the Transport of Contaminants through Environmental Systems

Contaminant Transport Diagram The GoldSim Contaminant Transport Module is an add-on extension to the GoldSim simulation software framework that allows you to dynamically model mass transport processes within complex engineered and/or natural environmental systems.

The Contaminant Transport Module is available in two versions:

  • GoldSim CT includes all the functionality necessary to simulate the transport of chemical constituents.
  • GoldSim RT is an expanded version of the Contaminant Transport Module that provides additional capabilities designed to support simulation of the release and transport of radioactive constituents from disposal sites.

The fundamental output produced by the Contaminant Transport modules (both CT and RT) consists of predicted mass fluxes at specified locations within the system, and predicted concentrations within environmental media (e.g., groundwater, soil, air) throughout the system. If desired, concentrations in environmental media can be converted to doses and/or health risks by assigning appropriate conversion factors.
