Summary: We discuss the formulation of a simulator in three spatial dimensions for a multicomponent, two phase (air, water) system of groundwater flow and transport with biodegradation kinetics and wells with multiple screens. The simulator has been developed for parallel, distributed memory, message passing machines. The numerical procedures employed are a fully implicit expanded mixed finite element method for flow and either a characteristics-mixed method or a Godunov method for transport and reactions of dissolved chemical species in groundwater. Domain decomposition, symmetric and nonsymmetric solvers have been developed for solving the systems of equations resulting from the discretization of the model. Results from applying this simulator to a bioremediation field problem with several injection and production wells each having multiple screens are presented. (English)
