Incinerator bottom ash (IBA) is a residual produced from incinerating municipal solid waste. In the past, IBA presented a big waste disposal problem; however, various recycling approaches have been adopted in recent years to mitigate this problem, as well as to provide a useful alternative to using primary aggregate resources. The use of IBA as an(More)
The purpose of this work is to study the desorption of dense nonaqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs), TCE in particular, from solid particles in field scale heterogeneous aquifers upon their remediation. A computer program, capable of simulating the fate and transport of NAPLs in porous media, has been developed to work under nonequilibrium sorption conditions.(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the performance of cutoff walls in controlling saltwater intrusion in stratified heterogeneous coastal aquifers. Numerical and laboratory experiments were completed in laboratory-scale aquifer where the effectiveness of cutoff walls was assessed in three different configurations, including a homogeneous scenario, a(More)
The length of contact time of contaminant with aquifer solids has a significant impact on the subsequent desorption process that normally occurs after the aquifer cleanup. In the present study, a diffusion model was built and validated with experimental results. Phenanthrene was brought in contact with sand and soil particles for different lengths of time.(More)
