- A generalized analytical transient, one-, two-, and/or three-dimensional (AT123D) computer code is developed for estimating the transport of wastes in a groundwater aquifer system. It contains 450 options: 288 for the three-dimensional case, 72 for the two-dimensional case in the x-y plane, 73 for the two-dimensional case in the x-z plane, and 18 for the one-dimensional case in the longitudinal direction. These are the combinations of three types of wastes, eight sets of source configurations, three kinds of source releases, and four variations of the aquifer dimensions. Three types of the wastes are radioactive waste, chemicals, and heat. The eight types of source configurations are a point source, a line source parallel to the x-axis, a line source parallel to the y-axis, a line source parallel to the z-axis, an area source perpendicular to the x-axis, an area source perpendicular to the y-axis, an area source perpendicular to the z-axis, and a volume source. Three kinds of source releases are instantaneous, continuous, and finite duration releases. Four variations of the aquifer dimensions are finite depth and finite width, finite depth and infinite width, infinite depth and finite width, and infinite depth and infinite width. The mechanisms of transport included in the analysis are advection, hydrodynamic dispersion, adsorption, decay/degeneration, and waste losses to the atmosphere. Boundary conditions included Dirichlet, Neumann, mixed type, and/or radiation boundaries. Fifty sample cases are provided to illustrate the application of AT1230 to various situations.
