A thermal-hydrologic-natural-ventilation model is configured for simulating temperature, humidity, and condensate distributions in the coupled domains of the in-drift airspace and the near-field rockmass. Meaningful results are obtained from the model for a practical application in which the beneficial effects of unheated drift sections are analyzed. Sensitivity to the axial dispersion coefficient is also studied with the model.
