Computational modelling of iron-ore mineralisation with stratigraphic permeability anisotropy
MetadataShow full item record
This study develops a computational framework to model fluid transport in sedimentary basins, targeting iron ore deposit formation. It offers a simplified flow model, accounting for geological features and permeability anisotropy as driving factors. A new finite element method lessens computational effort, facilitating robust predictions and cost-effective exploration. This methodology, applicable to other mineral commodities, enhances understanding of genetic models, supporting the search for new mineral deposits amid the global energy transition.
