Modeling of landfill settlement: Theory

Durmusoglu, E.
Corapcioglu, M.y.

Theory of a one-dimensional multiphase mathematical model developed to simulate the settlement involving liquid and gas flows in a compressible landfill is presented. Landfill domain is assumed comprised of a deformable solid matrix, a liquid phase, and a gas phase with transient gas generation. After a two-phase model, i.e., liquid and gas phase, was developed, a solid phase was incorporated into the model. A gas generation term was employed as source and sink for solid and gas phases. After governing equations are developed, the Galerkin finite element technique is employed to discretize the partial differential equations.

Landfill settlement with decomposition and gas generation
Durmusoglu, E; Corapcioglu, MY; Tuncay, Kağan (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-09-01)
A one-dimensional multiphase numerical model is developed to simulate the vertical settlement involving liquid and gas flows in a deformable.(settling) municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill. MSW is represented by a chemical composition, and a global stoichiometric reaction is used to estimate the maximum yield of gas generation. Following the general assumption accepted in the literature, the gas generated by waste decomposition is assumed to comprise of in I ethane (CH4)and carbon dioxide (CO2). The gas gen...
Exact solutions and the consistency of 3D minimal massive gravity
Altas, Emel; Tekin, Bayram (2015-07-20)
We show that all algebraic type-O, type-N and type-D and some Kundt-type solutions of topologically massive gravity are inherited by its holographically well-defined deformation, that is, the recently found minimal massive gravity. This construction provides a large class of constant scalar curvature solutions to the theory. We also study the consistency of the field equations both in the source-free and matter-coupled cases. Since the field equations of MMG do not come from a Lagrangian that depends on the...
Evaluation of PCB dechlorination pathways in anaerobic sediment microcosms using an anaerobic dechlorination model
Demirtepe, Hale; Kjellerup, Birthe; Sowers, Kevin R.; İmamoğlu, İpek (Elsevier BV, 2015-10-15)
A detailed quantitative analysis of anaerobic dechlorination (AD) pathways of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in sediment microcosms was performed by applying an anaerobic dechlorination model (ADM). The purpose of ADM is to systematically analyze changes in a contaminant profile that result from microbial reductive dechlorination according to empirically determined dechlorination pathways. In contrast to prior studies that utilized modeling tools to predict dechlorination pathways, ADM also provides quant...
Simulation of surface waves generated by a rapid rise of a block at the sea bottom
Şenol, Nalan; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
A mathematical model is developed for investigating time dependent surface deformations of a hydrostatic water volume, when it is subjected to a sudden partial rise of the sea bottom. In the model, 2-dimensional, compressible, and viscous Navier-Stokes equations are solved by Marker and Cell (MAC) method. Variable mesh size in both horizontal and vertical directions with a staggered grid arrangement is used. Limited compressibility model is utilized for pressure. Various computational tests are done for the...
In situ combustion model development and its applications for laboratory studies
Ocalan, Ramazan; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1995-01-01)
A one-dimensional in situ combustion model was developed for oil and gas production calculations using a frontal-advance theory combined with mass and energy balance equations and simplified by boundary conditions, limitations and assumptions. The model is run for data from laboratory combustion tube experiments. Model runs for such experiments show that the results are in good agreement with the experimental values for the dry combustion mode, but not for the wet combustion mode where the water injection i...
