Important InformationPotential Limitations of the Domenico-based Fate and Transport Models
An analytical solution, called REMFuel (for Remediation Evaluation Model for Fuel hydrocarbons) has been developed for simulating the transient effects of groundwater source and plume remediation for fuel hydrocarbons. In the analytical method, the contaminant source model is based on a power function relationship between source mass and source discharge for multiple fuel constituents, and it can consider partial source remediation at any time after the initial release. The source model serves as a time-dependent mass flux boundary condition to the analytical plume model, where flow is assumed to be one dimensional. The plume model for each fuel component simulates first order sequential decay and production of one daughter species. REMFuel can also simulate zero order or Monod's kinetics for decay of fuel components in the plume. The decay rates and other reaction coefficients are variable functions of time and distance in the plume. This approach allows for flexible simulation of enhanced plume remediation that may be temporary in time, limited in space, and which may have different effects on different contaminant species in the plume.

REMFuel v 1.0 requires a standard PC running Windows 98 or greater. The .Net framework that is required
comes with the setup.exe and will be loaded with the application. Minimum requirements for the .Net
framework are a Pentium 90 MHz or faster processor and 32 MB of RAM or higher (96 MB or higher
There is one file to download to install REMFuel: REMFuelsetup (EXE) (52.3 MB)
To install the software, run the file 'REMFuelsetup.exe'. The software will guide the user through the
installation process. Upon first running of REMFuel from the desktop icon, the user will be
asked to run it again. This serves to initialize the application after which REMFuel will run properly in
