Modelling Chemical and Biological Clogging of Permeable Reactive Barrier when Treating Acidic Groundwater

Clogging can occur in the permeable reactive barrier (PRB) used to treat acidic
groundwater, which reduces the PRBs effectiveness. For my project, I will be using partial
differential equations to model transient flow to determine when the clogging occurs and
the location. Therefore, it can be determined when to replace the PRB and where it needs
replacing. I will consider chemical and biological processes that lead to the clogging in my
equation and solve it analytically and numerically. Further information can be found in my
