Abstract:

MELTER-ISV SIMULATOR IS BEING DEVELOPED AS THE INDUSTRY-STANDARD COMPUTATIONAL MODEL FOR SIMULATING IN-SITU VITRIFICATION (ISV) PROCESSES THAT ARE CURRENTLY BEING CONSIDERED AS ALTERNATIVE REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR HAZARDOUS-WASTE SITES. THE ADVANCED STATE-OF-THE-ART COMPUTATIONAL MODEL IS ABLE TO SIMULATE THE TRANSIENT, THREE-DIMENSIONAL, CHEMICALLY REACTING, MULTI-CONSTITUENT-MATERIAL, MULTI-PHASE SOLID, LIQUID, GAS (VAPOR) CONVECTION-FLOW AND HEAT-TRANSFER CONDITIONS IN THE MELT AND IN THE SURROUNDING GROUND, DURING ISV PROCESSES. THEREFORE, IT WILL BE ABLE TO PREDICT, ACCURATELY, THE DETAILED GEOMETRY OF THE MOLTEN GROUND-MATERIALS THAT CAN BE GENERATED DURING A SITE-SPECIFIC ISV PROCESS AND, CONSEQUENTLY, WHETHER OR NOT THE PLANNED SITE-SPECIFIC REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAM CAN ACTUALLY STABILIZE AND IMMOBILIZE BY ENCAPSULATION, THE CONTAMINANTS AT THE HAZARDOUS-WASTE SITE. MELTER-ISV SIMULATOR ESTABLISHES THE URGENTLY NEEDED COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS CAPABILITY FOR THE EMERGING ISV TECHNOLOGY WHICH CAN BE USED BY THE REGULATORY AGENCIES; IN FEASIBILITY STUDIES; BY THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R&D) ORGANIZATIONS; AND THE INDUSTRY IN THE ENGINEERING-DESIGN AND PLANNING OF SITE-SPECIFIC ISV SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE IMPLEMENTED, COST-EFFECTIVELY, AS REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAMS FOR HAZARDOUS-WASTE SITES IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD.
