Simulating Effects of Non-Isothermal Flow on Reactive Transport of Radionuclides Originating From an Underground Nuclear Test

Steven Carle, Mavrik Zavarin, Andrew Tompson, Reed Maxwell, Gayle Pawloski & Steven Carle
In numerical simulation of radionuclide transport, a mechanistic reactive transport model can account for non-electrostatic surface complexation, ion exchange, and mineral dissolution/precipitation reactions. However, in radionuclide transport originating from an underground nuclear test, thermal effects must also be considered because heat accounts for the majority of energy released from the test. A large fraction of residual test heat is initially contained in a “puddle” of solidified melt glass and rubble containing much of the less-volatile...
