Abstract This paper describes the mathematical and numerical basis, and the application of an equivalent porous media flow model for fluid flow, heat and mass transport. The paper describes the mathematical and numerical framework of the model, its verification against analytic solutions and its application to the problem of heat and ground water flow in a hypothetical nuclear waste repository driven by the radioactive decay heat. 12 refs.
