Ready-made interfaces make it easy to simulate single and coupled processes related to subsurface flow. The module is well suited for studies in oil and gas flow in porous media, the modeling of groundwater flow, and the spread of pollution through soil.
A variety of specialized interfaces are available for easy application of the Richards and Navier-Stokes equations, Darcy’s law, and Brinkman’s extension of Darcy’s law. In addition, the module handles the transport and reaction of solutes as well as heat transport in porous media.
The Earth Science Module provides examples to demonstrate multiphysics modeling of geophysical and environmental problems with arbitrary couplings to other application modes in COMSOL Multiphysics®, such as solid deformation and electromagnetics.
