Abstract: In the present investigation, a numerical model based on the network simulation method has been designed and applied in order to obtain correlation between temperature patterns and profiles in large 2-D groundwater real scenarios, with horizontal or vertical regional flow and thermal conditions that reproduce approximately real cases, such as the daily or seasonal variation of the soil surface temperature. The illustrated applications show the power and capacity of the numerical tool, which is based on the analogy between electrical and physical variables of the problem to design an equivalent electrical circuit, from whose resolution the values of the real variables temperature and transferred heat flow are inferred.
