A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) approach to simulating an ex-situ biopile is presented. The model represents a hydrocarbon contaminated pile subject to an ambient wind, with three different aeration systems. It is found that the CFD approach offers useful insight into this problem, that the cooling effect due to wind and aeration has a significant effect on the biodegradation of contaminant and that a substantial proportion of contaminant is volatilized to the atmosphere rather than biodegraded.
