Abstract

In this paper we develop a meshless method for modeling groundwater contaminant transport. The algorithm uses collocation method with radial basis functions. Numerical results are presented for several cases: pure diffusion; advection and dispersion for continuous source; advection and dispersion for instantaneous source; advection and dispersion for patch-source. The results show that the method is very simple and accurate.
