A computer program for the analysis of 1-D contaminant migration through a soil layer

The physical and chemical processes that influence contaminant transport through a saturated soil layer are presented. The computer program (1DContr) was developed based on existing analytical solutions for one-dimensional transport of contaminants in a saturated soil layer. The computer program is given for pulse and continuous source. The formulation includes advective and dispersive transport as well as sorption and first order transformation. The computer program that is based on analytical solutions is recommended for preliminary design.

A structurally dynamic modelling - Lake Mogan, Turkey as a case study
Zhang, JJ; Jorgensen, SE; Tan, CO; Beklioğlu, Meryem (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-15)
A structurally dynamic model based on phosphorus nutrient limitation has been developed for Lake Mogan located nearby Ankara, Turkey. This eutrophication model, which includes very dense submerged plants, was calibrated using a standard procedure described by Jorgensen and Bendoriccho [Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling, 3rd ed. Elsevier, Amsterdam, 20 pp.]. Furthermore, exergy was applied as a goal function to consider the dynamic adaptation and the seasonality of plankton species (e.g. size shifts). Thi...
Assessment of diffusive and convective mechanisms during carbon dioxide sequestration into deep saline aquifers
Özgür, Emre; Gümrah, Fevzi; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
The analytical and numerical modeling of CO2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers having different properties was studied with diffusion and convection mechanisms. The complete dissolution of CO2 in the aquifer by diffusion took thousands, even millions of years. In diffusion dominated system, an aquifer with 100 m thickness saturated with CO2 after 10,000,000 years. It was much earlier in convective dominant system. In diffusion process, the dissolution of CO2 in aquifer increased with porosity increase; ...
A New Isotropic Specimen Preparation Method from Slurry for both Saturated and Unsaturated Triaxial Testing of a Low-Plasticity Silt
Ahmadi-Naghadeh, Reza; Toker, Nabi Kartal (ASTM International, 2019-07-01)
A new procedure for the preparation of low-plasticity silt specimens that are isotropically reconstituted from slurry is developed for use in both saturated and unsaturated soil testing. Spatial variations of the water content and grain size distribution were examined to confirm the uniformity of the specimens (regarding void radio and segregation). The new preparation method results in a homogeneous specimen, which has a simple stress history. The repeatability of the proposed method in preparing identical...
A numerical model for two-phase immiscible fluid flow in a porous medium
Ozdemir, Osman N.; Yildiz, Ebru F.; Ger, Metin (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Chemical grouting may be defined as the injection of chemical mixtures, known as grouts, into the pore space of the soil. It is extensively used for ground stabilization in the construction industry. The mechanism by which injected grout permeates a soil mass involves a complex interaction of both chemical and physical factors that are not well understood. The objective of this work is to develop a two-dimensional numerical model for the computation of a two-phase immiscible flow in a porous medium. The pha...
A course delivery method by using a software to predict contaminant migration through a soil layer
AKTAŞ, Tugce; Çokça, Erdal (2018-09-01)
The authors propose a course delivery method for the contaminant transport through a saturated soil layer to explain contamination of soils in the Environmental Geotechnology course. In civil and environmental engineering education, analytical simulation models help students to understand the processes. MATLAB copy-based simulation method is proposed in this paper, to enhance learning of students of contaminant migration phenomena, and the simulation program is written by the students within the course base...
