Approaching the Groundwater Remediation Problem Using Multifidelity Optmization

Kathleen Fowler, Genetha Gray & Genetha Gray
The objective of the hydraulic capture method for optimal groundwater remediation design is containment of a contaminant plume using barrier wells to reverse the direction of groundwater flow. Finding a solution involves applying optimization algorithms in conjunction with simulators for groundwater flow and possibly for contaminant transport. The formulation of the objective function and its corresponding constraints dictates which optimization algorithms are appropriate and usually eliminates gradient based approaches from consideration. In addition, objective functions...
