Regional Problems: Vertically Averaged Modelling
In this chapter a mathematical model is presented, based on an averaging technique, in which the equations governing the behaviour of saturated porous media are integrated over the smallest dimension of the domain. This results in a two dimensional model, in which the three dimensional nature of the problem is accounted for. The computational efficiency of the approach is improved by using a partitioned procedure. An application is then presented dealing with the real problem of Abano Terme reservoir.
