Title: SCHAFF

Abstract

The SCHAFF (Slightly Compressible Heat and Fluid Flow) program was developed for numerical modeling of liquid geothermal systems involving natural convection and hot spring discharge. For one-, two-, or three-dimensional porous media, the single-phase fluid and heat transfer equations are solved interlaced in time, using an integrated finite difference method. The mathematical model describing the physical behavior of hot-water geothermal systems is used to analyze natural or cellular convection in permeable layers heated from below.
