Multiphase and multi-component interactions through the unsaturated saturated zone field and model study Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract An integrated approach of field and model investigations was implemented to an aquifer underlying urban infrastructure. The study focuses on the transport of Trichloroethylene (TCE) through the unsaturated-saturated zone. Simulations, subject to isothermal conditions, addressed a threedimensional continuum involving three interacting mobile phases: aqueous, NAPL (Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids) and gaseous. The mathematical model considers water, air and TCE as components in equilibrium …
