3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

CHAINT-MC is a two-dimensional  finite element model applicable to the transport of a dissolved radionuclide in a fractured porous medium along with radioactive chain decay and subsequent transport of the dissolved daughters.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The conceptual modeling approach is based on representing the space domain by a vertical cross section. The mathematical model embodied by CHAINT is based on the physical law of conservation of mass. Physical processes accounted for in the model include advection, diffusion, dispersion, and retardation along with mass decay and production/injection.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

In generating a
two-dimensional finite element mesh, the following guidelines should be used: a) quadrilateral elements should be used for most of the mesh; b) element aspect ratios should not exceed roughly 100; c) midside nodes should be located in the middle third of the element side or length; d) the element numbering sequence should be continuous and should begin along the side of the grid with the fewest elements.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The code was tested on a Cray XMP under the CTSS operating system. The sample problem took less than .4 second of CPU time.
