Computational Radon Transport Mechanisms considers various mathematical modeling techniques for understanding radon transport mechanisms across various mediums, including soil, concrete and water. Clearly organized by types of problems, including steady and unsteady states, inverse problems, and uncertainty, the book provides clear solutions to understanding and analyzing radon transport mechanisms. In addition, the book considers recent advances that have proposed different analytical, semi-analytical, and numerical techniques to handle differential equations that govern radon diffusion-advection. As such, this book considers various mathematical models of radon transport.

Covering various computational methods for modeling transport mechanisms in general and diffusion as well as advection equations in particular, this resource provides researchers working in environmental science, earth science, physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, and health with various analytical/numerical computational methods for solving different models governing radon transport.

Key Features

  • Describes radon transport mechanisms in various mediums
  • Provides a systematic understanding of mathematical formulations and numerical/analytical modeling of radon transport problems
  • Offers new, inverse approaches to estimate the parameters of radon transport
