Box 812, CameroonJournal Article20220628This study presents a new approach to solve the one-dimensional solute transport equation with variable coefficients and two input sources in a finite porous media. The medium is divided into m-layers porous media with constant averages coefficients in each transport problem. The transport equations in layer i-1 and i are coupled by imposing the continuity of solute concentration and the dispersive flux at the interfaces of the layers. Unknown functions representing the dispersive flux at the interfaces between adjacent layers are introduced allowing the multilayer problem to be solved separately on each layer in the Laplace domain before being numerical inverted back to the time domain. The obtained solution was compared with the Generalized Integral Transform Technique (GITT) and numerical solutions for some problems of solute transport with variables coefficients in porous medium present in the literature. The results show a good agreement between both solutions for each of the studied problem. An example of application considering an advective-dispersive transport problem with a sinusoidal time-dependent emitting rate at the boundary was study in order to illustrate the effect of sinusoidal frequency on solute concentration. https://jpoll.ut.ac.ir/article_89738_9d1acb41152f539b8dd31660dfe5dc39.pdf
