Amphos 21 provides access to a variety of specialists with high levels of technical proficiencies to meet the needs of a dynamic and increasingly specialized market. In addition to our advanced computational modeling abilities, we are proficient in running on-site and in-situ studies of site characterizations, executing and monitoring hydrogeological exploration, and performing laboratory studies.

Amphos 21 services the market through a tight synergy between our expert scientists within chemistry, geochemistry, hydrogeology and physics, and our experienced modelers that all hold strong backgrounds within mathematics, physics and computer science.

Areas of Expertise

Our main areas of expertise within simulating multiphysics and coupled processes include:

  • Hydrogeology
  • Geochemistry
  • Chemistry
  • Multiphase flow simulations: from large reservoirs to the pore/fracture scale
  • Non-isothermal multiphase reactive transport: near-field evolution of engineered barrier systems, large scale reservoir behavior
  • Reactive transport: coupled Thermo-Hydro-Chemical analyses
  • Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical: modeling of coupled processes in geosciences and engineering
  • Computational solid mechanics: plasticity, damage, fracture mechanics
  • High performance computing and advanced computational analyses
  • Development of tailor-made physics user interfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Inverse parameter estimation and sensitivity analysis

Featured COMSOL Projects

Model of groundwater flow across a rock vault for low and intermediate level radioactive waste: shown is the water head in the waste compartments, the flow streamlines, and the hydraulic conductivity of the fractured rock surrounding the repository (isosurface plot).

Simulation of the reactive transport processes in compacted bentonite, from a prototype experiment of a nuclear waste underground repository: shown is the unit fraction of sodium occupancy in the cation exchanger of the bentonite column after 6 months of hydration and heating.

Model of a pit lake flooding after mine closure: shown is the water head distribution in a 3D hydrogeological model involving several geology strata, two rivers and water recharge conditions.

Model of the large-scale dewatering of a mine using the Subsurface Flow Module: shown is the steady-state groundwater pressure head as well as the hydrogeological impact produced by mine dewatering.
