Sub-Surface Flow and Transport Parameter Identification via Inverse Simulation
Carey, Martha M.
Minimization of a nonlinear output least squares objective function consisting of both concentration and pressure residuals is used to estimate parameters representing hydraulic conductivities. Details of objective function construction and behavior, numerical optimization, forward simulation of flow and transport, mapping of parameters to computational hydraulic conductivities, computational needs and numerical results are discussed. Inclusion of concentration data creates a smooth and convex objective function from which hydraulic conductivities can be retrieved with accuracy.
