CTRAN/W is a finite element CAD software product that can be used to model the movement of contaminants through porous materials such as soil and rock. The comprehensive formulation of CTRAN/W makes it possible to analyze problems varying from simple particle tracking in response to the movement of water, to complex processes involving diffusion, dispersion, adsorption, radioactive decay and density dependencies. CTRAN/W can be applied to the analysis and design of geotechnical, civil, hydrogeological, and mining engineering projects.
CTRAN/W is designed to be used in tandem with a seepage analysis such as SEEP/W to analyze contaminant transport.SEEP/W computes the water flow velocity, volumetric water content, and water flux; CTRAN/W uses these parameters to compute the contaminant migration.
