[case] HT

HT process

The implementation uses a monolithic approach, i.e., both processes are assembled within one global system of equations.

Process Coupling

The advective term of the heat conduction equation is given by the confined groundwater flow process, i.e., the heat conduction depends on darcy velocity of the groundwater flow process. On the other hand the temperature dependencies of the viscosity and density in the groundwater flow couples the H process to the T process.

At the moment there is not any coupling by source or sink terms, i.e., the coupling is implemented only by density changes due to temperature changes in the buoyance term in the groundwater flow. This coupling schema is referred to as the Boussinesq approximation.
