Computer Modeling of Five-spot Well Pattern Fluid Flow During in Situ Uranium Leaching.
NTIS: PB 282 985 :76 pages
This Bureau of Mines report describes the development and application of a computer model of aquifer hydrology associated with in situ leaching of uranium. The model provides uranium resource developers with a simulation of leachant flow characteristics in a preproduction or pilot five-spot leaching operation. Various types of acquifers are modeled using closed form solutions of the partial differential equations describing the change in fluid head (pressure) as the leaching operation is carried out. User-supplied descriptive input consists of aquifer, well, and leachant flow characteristics. Numeric, and graphic outputs such as isopressure, isovelocity, and isotime contours are available. A typical application is shown.
