Krylov methods applied to reactive transport models



Reactive transport models couple advection dispersion equations with chemistry equations. If the reactions are at thermodynamic equilibrium, then the system is a set of partial differential and algebraic equations. After space and implicit time discretizations, a nonlinear system of equations must be solved at each time step. The Jacobian matrix of the nonlinear system can be written with a Kronecker product coupling transport and chemistry. Krylov methods are well-suited to solve such linear systems because the matrix vector product can be done efficiently. The main challenge is to design a preconditioning matrix. We propose here to use the special structure of the matrix. Preliminary experiments show that Krylov methods are much more efficient than a direct method which does not use the coupled structure.
