Air transfer analysis
AIR/W is a powerful finite element software product for modeling air transfer in mine waste and other porous media. AIR/W can be used to model a range of scenarios, from simple single phase air transfer problems to complex coupled air-water systems. Add AIR3D to analyze 3D air transfer using the same comprehensive set of material models and boundary conditions.
The true power of AIR/W and AIR3D is unlocked when it is coupled with TEMP/W to model forced-convection heat flow and density-dependent air flow. This type of analysis is important for studying mine closure, acid rock drainage, or gas transfer.
