Acid rock drainage (ARD) is the attributed to the complex interaction of physical, hydrological, geochemical, and microbiological process (Wels et al). This example presents the analysis of the water flow, heat flow and air flow in waster rock piles using a triple coupling numerical model supplied with the software of SVAirflow, SVFlux and SVHeat. The purpose of this example is to demonstrate the application of the SVOffice software to understanding the dominant process in a waste rock pile.

The conceptual model for a waste rock pile is that heat is generated due to the oxidation of pyrite deep in the pile in the presence of oxygen and moisture. The heat source results in convective currents in the waste rock pile, which affects the flow of both air and water. This numerical example will result in a greater understanding of these flows.

This particular example is designed to give the user an idea of potential flow through a waste rock pile when the rock is stacked in mounts.The purpose of this model is to determine the general flow regimen and how water might be delivered deeper into the waste rock.
