|Determination of mass transfer rates of Contaminants during Steam-Air Enhanced in-situ remediation processes, Part I|
|description||The computer software “DLI-Tool” is used to design a steam-air driven in-situ soil and groundwater remediation. Thermodynamic and hydrodynamic processes are well predicted by the
software. The contaminant mass removal depends on process specific parameters as well as
the site specific parameters soil type, content of organic matter, and kind of contaminants distribution.|
The investigation of the mass removal rate for chlorinated hydrocarbons is based on a literature study to develop an analytical/numerical solution. The novel approach will be verified during
flume experiments in the VEGAS facility. The work may be split into three different theses.
The main tasks will be the experimental implementation of 2-D remediation experiments and
the data evaluation and the enhancement of an existing spreadsheet-based analytical method
to predict the contaminant mass transfer rates.
