Comsol Multiphysics and Phreeqc are among the most powerful software in multiphysics and geochemistry, respectively. iCP communicates them and achieves a flexible and powerful tool for solving all kind of multiphysics coupled with reactive transport processes in both, porous and fractured media.
iCP stands for interface Comsol-Phreeqc. It is an interface to couple Comsol and Phreeqc. The result of this interface is a tool for solving a wide range of multiphysics and chemical problems. It is written in Java and uses the IPhreeqc C++ dynamic library and the Comsol Java API. Furthermore, it takes advantage of the multicore computer architecture by balancing the computational load over different threads.
iCP is able to model as many physical phenomena as Comsol does, combined with the powerful chemical capabilities of Phreeqc. From a geoscientific point of view these capabilities can be resumed as:
Furthermore, couplings between chemical and physical processes can also be considered, such as chemically-induced porosity changes and their impact on permeability.

These are the different partners support one or more iMaGe projects:
A complete wiki is under construction. It will contain complete documentation, Q&A and will be the site where technical support will be centralized .
