Current Activities and Projects
Oostrom is a co-author of the numerical simulator STOMP (Subsurface Transport Over Multiple Phases). The simulator is specifically designed to provide scientists and engineers from varied disciplines with multidimensional analysis capabilities for modeling subsurface flow and transport phenomena. STOMP's target capabilities were guided by proposed or applied remediation activities at sites contaminated with volatile organic compounds and/or radioactive material. Developed with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Environmental Restoration and Waste Management, the simulator's modeling capabilities address a variety of subsurface environments, including nonisothermal conditions, fractured media, multiple-phase systems, nonwetting fluid entrapment, soil freezing conditions, nonaqueous phase liquids, first-order chemical reactions, radioactive decay, solute transport, dense brines, nonequilibrium dissolution, and surfactant-enhanced dissolution and mobilization of organics.
