The contamination of groundwater by denser-than-water nonaqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) is a well-documented problem of nationwide scope. Simulation of such contamination is limited both by fundamental understanding of the processes involved and by the lack of appropriate simulation models. An empirical, mass transfer relationship of the dissolution of DNAPL in porous media was developed and experimental techniques were developed for measuring the mass transfer coefficient. A new technique was developed for measuring the DNAPL phase flow parameters (capillary pressure-saturation curves), which eliminated the effects of sample size on the measured curves. Simulation of the flow and dissolution of the DNAPL was accomplished by an efficient collocation based algorithm which was well suited for parallel processing. The model was used to simulate the experimental dissolution occurring during the measurement of the mass transfer coefficient. Good agreement between the model and the experimental data was obtained.
