Title: Proceedings of the TOUGH workshop

Abstract

A workshop on applications and enhancements of the TOUGH/MULKOM family of multiphase fluid and heat flow simulation programs was held at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory on September 13--14, 1990. The workshop was attended by 62 scientists from seven countries with interests in geothermal reservoir engineering, nuclear waste isolation, unsaturated zone hydrology, environmental problems, and laboratory and field experimentation. The meeting featured 21 technical presentations, extended abstracts of which are reproduced in the present volume in unedited form. Simulator applications included processes on a broad range of space scales, from centimeters to kilometers, with transient times from seconds to geologic time scales. A number of code enhancements were reported that increased execution speeds for large 3-D problems by factors of order 20, reduced memory requirements, and improved user-friendliness. The workshop closed with an open discussion session that focussed on future needs and means for interaction in the TOUGH user community. Input from participants was gathered by means of a questionnaire that is reproduced in the appendix. 171 refs., 91 figs., 16 tabs.

  • The TOUGH Workshop `95 focused on applications and enhancements of the TOUGH/MULKOM family of numerical simulation programs for complex flows in permeable media, including multiphase, multicomponent, non- isothermal, and variable-density flows. There were about 100 participants from 10 countries in attendance. The topical areas covered included environmental remediation, nuclear waste isolation, geothermal and petroleum reservoir engineering, mining engineering, vadose zone hydrology, and simulation methods. This volume features the extended summaries of papers that were presented at the workshop. The technical program and lists of authors and registered participants are included in appendices. Individual papers have been processed separately for themore » databases.« less
  • Welcome to the TOUGH Symposium 2009. Within this volume are the Symposium Program for eighty-nine papers to be presented in both oral and poster formats. The full papers are available as pdfs linked from the Symposium Program posted on the TOUGH Symposium 2009 website http://esd.lbl.gov/newsandevents/events/toughsymposium09/program.html Additional updated information including any changes to the Program will also be available at the website. The papers cover a wide range of application areas and reflect the continuing trend toward increased sophistication of the TOUGH codes. A CD containing the proceedings papers will be published immediately following the Symposium and sent to all participants.more » As in the prior Symposium, selected papers will be invited for submission to a number of journals for inclusion in Special Issues focused on applications and developments of the TOUGH codes. These journals include, Transport in Porous Media, Geothermics, Energy Conversion and Management, Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, and the Vadose Zone Journal.« less
  • This report contains twenty-one papers dealing with the theoretical apsects of high beta, magnetically confined plasmas. Individual abstracts were prepared for each paper.
  • This report summarizes the results of a workshop held to receive expert advice and review existing Columbia River models that include juvenile salmonid predation components and, if warranted, recommend alternate modeling approaches. The workshop was limited to models or modeling approaches that may have practical application to the specific problems of increasing survival of juvenile salmonids in the Columbia and Snake rivers by reducing predation losses. The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) under interagency agreements with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) conducted a multi-year study of the impact of predatormore » populations on juvenile salmonids in the John Day Reservoir of the Columbia River. The studies were part of BPA's implementation of the Northwest Power Planning Council's (NPPC) Fish and Wildlife Program, designed to protect and enhance production of salmon as mitigation for losses caused by hydroelectric development. The FWS agreement with BPA includes provisions for refinement or development of models to understand the dynamics of predation on juvenile salmon as a basis for considering active intervention to reduce predation losses. The BPA sponsored the workshop that included a review of existing and proposed modeling approaches, identification of model development needs, and identification of data needs to support modeling efforts. Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) provided workshop design, facilitation, and support services including preparation of this summary. 16 refs., 15 figs., 5 tabs.« less
