  1. 1. Water and Heat Transport in Road Structures : Development of Mechanistic Models

    Author : Klas Hansson; Lars-Christer Lundin; Kurt Roth; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Water flow; Heat flow; Unsaturated flow; Freeze-thaw; Numerical models; Uncertainty analysis; Sensitivity analysis; Roads; Overland flow; Flow patterns; TDR; Water content reflectometer; Calibration; Fractures; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : The coupled transport of water and heat, involving freezing and thawing, in the road structure and its immediate environment is important to consider for optimal design and maintenance of roads and when assessing solute transport, of e.g. de-icing salt, from roads. READ MORE

  2. 2. Generation of Leachate and the Flow Regime in Landfills

    Author : David Bendz; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geologi; Hydrogeologi; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; model; transport; flow; leachate; water; hydrology; landfill; MSW; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi;

    Abstract : The environmental impacts of landfills are associated mainly with the emission of leachate and biogas. Sanitary landfilling aims to stabilize the landfill in a efficient and controlled way, so that the environmental impacts are minimized. When a sanitary landfill has attained its final storage quality, it can be integrated into the environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Unsaturated Solute Transport in a Semiarid Catchment - Nonlinear Analyses and Modelling

    Author : Pernilla Öhrström; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; unsaturated zone; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; solute transport; scaling; soils; semiarid regions; heterogeneity; preferential flow; fractals;

    Abstract : Unsaturated solute transport is highly variable and therefore difficult to predict. In semi-arid areas, where water resources are limited, the presence of macropores is of great importance for crop production. The bromide ion (Br-) and dye tracers are useful for studies of water movement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transport and Fate of Escherichia coli in Unsaturated Porous Media

    Author : Emma Engström; Berit Balfors; Chin-Fu Tsang; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Contaminant transport modeling; Bacterial fate; Unsaturated zone; Retention; Straining; Escherichia coli;

    Abstract : The unsaturated zone could provide an effective barrier against pathogenic microbes entering the groundwater. Knowledge relating to microbial fate in this zone is therefore important for increased understanding of groundwater vulnerability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drip Sealing Grouting of Tunnels in Crystalline Rock: Conceptualisation and Technical Strategies

    Author : Christian Butron; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; icicle formation; drip sealing; unsaturated flow; rock fracture; dripping.; channels; crystalline rock; design; Grouting; ice growth; evaluation;

    Abstract : A conceptual model of the groundwater hydraulic conditions around the tunnel contour in ancient brittle crystalline rocks has been developed and verified. The general aim has been to reach an understanding of the groundwater conditions in and close to the tunnel roof where dripping takes place and to propose technical and practical strategies for waterproofing.
