The use of well-characterized porous media can simplify and improve the efficiency of laboratory subsurface flow and transport experiments. The objective of this study was to present a comprehensive set of hydrologically relevant properties for a unique set of commercially available silica sands. Features of sands selected for characterization included high sphericity, high batch-to-batch consistency, Miller-similarity, and availability in large quantities. Samples of four different sand grades… CONTINUE READING
