Removal of oxyfluorfen from spiked soils using electrokinetic fences
In this work, an accidental spill of Fluoxyl (commercial herbicide containing oxyfluorfen) is simulated in a pilot plant with a soil volume of 70 × 50 × 50 cm3. The transport of Fluoxyl obtained by the free diffusion of ...
Assessment of temperature effect on bentonite microstructure deformability
The temperature effect on the microstructure deformability of compacted bentonites was assessed using a Clausius-Clapeyron type equation. To this end, vapor adsorption data obtained at different temperatures under low water ...
Precomputation of Critical State Soil Plastic Models
In this paper, a simple precomputing procedure is proposed to improve the numerical performance of the technological application of critical state soil models. In these models, if associated plasticity is assumed, the ...
Caracterización de pétreos de la Catedral de Santa María de Cuenca
(Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Escuela Politécnica de Cuenca, 2015)
Este trabajo de investigación forma parte de la tesis doctoral de D. Enrique Torrero y en ella han participado de forma activa tanto estudiantes como profesores de la Escuela Politécnica. Parte del trabajo ha consistido ...
Remediation of soils polluted with 2,4-D by electrokinetic soil flushing with facing rows of electrodes
This study focuses on evaluating the application of electrokinetic soil flushing (EKSF) technologies to remediate soil polluted with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). This compound was selected as an example of polar ...
Removal of oxyfluorfen from spiked soils using electrokinetic soil flushing with the surrounding arrangements of electrodes
This work reports the results of a study in which the remediation of soil that undergoes an accidental discharge of oxyfluorfen is carried out by using electrokinetic soil flushing (EKSF). Two different electrode configurations ...
Salinity effects on the erosion behaviour of MX-80 bentonite:
The erosion behaviour of bentonites is influenced by the ions concentration to which they are exposed, which could lead to link the erodibility of bentonite to salinity. However, changes in salinity produce further changes ...
A water retention model accounting for void ratio changes in double porosity clays
This paper presents a constitutive model that predicts the water retention behaviour of compacted clays with evolving bimodal pore size distributions. In line with previous research, the model differentiates between the ...
