  2. 2. Water in roads: Flow paths and pollutant spread

    Author : Hedi Rasul; B. Olofsson; Helen Kristine French; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; De-icing salt; Road; Tracer test; ERT; Water content; Road pollutants; Flow pathways; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : For better road construction and maintenance while minimising damage to the environment and groundwater, it is essential to monitor and model hydrological impacts on roads and consider pollution of groundwater. Water content in unbound material in road layers changes continuously and water flow usually occurs along pathways that are the main corridors for pollutant spread to groundwater. READ MORE

  3. 3. Motion in Language and Experience : Actual and Non-actual motion in Swedish, French and Thai
