The transport of colloids and bacterial cells through saturated porous media is a complex phenomenon involving many interrelated processes that are often treated via application of classical colloid filtration theory (CFT). This paper presents a numerical investigation of CFT from the Lagrangian perspective, to evaluate the role of some of the classical assumptions underlying the theory and to demonstrate a means to include processes relevant to bacterial transport that were inadequately… CONTINUE READING
