What is ConSim?

Developed by Golder Associates on behalf of the Environment Agency, ConSim is designed to provide those concerned with the management of contaminated land with a means of assessing the risk that is posed to groundwater by leaching contaminants.

ConSim version 2.5

ConSim 2.5 has three new features:

  • Source duplication function. This option reduces the amount of repetitive data-entry by allowing the user to duplicate a selected source area;
  • Automated insertion of timeslices. The time series graphs of concentration that ConSim produces are calculated only for the timeslices defined by the user. A function in ConSim 2.5 eliminates the time-consuming task of typing single timeslices into the model by allowing the user to automatically generate several timeslices within chosen limits; and
  • Multiple unsaturated pathways. ConSim 2.5 enables the user to introduce layering in the unsaturated zone to take account of the effects that different materials will have on the flow of water and contaminant movement. It should be noted that the soakaway and dual porosity options remain available only for the case of one single unsaturated zone pathway.
