Application of Time Domain Reflectometry and Heat Pulse Methods for Quantifying Phase Change, Water Flow and Heat Transport in Frozen SoilsDownload
Understanding water flow and heat transport processes in frozen/freezing soils is limited by methodologies for simultaneous, automated measurement of soil properties affecting soil water and heat flux. The major objective of this dissertation was to develop and evaluate time domain reflectometry...
A study was implemented to evaluate different alternatives of soil cover systems for the closure of approximately 1539 Mt of waste rock at the Antamina Mine (Peru). The soil covers were designed to limit water percolation to the underlying waste rock, by combining a store/release and low...
Numerical Simulation Of Water Flow Through Unsaturated Soil In Vertical And Inclined Layered SystemsDownload
In past decades, there were discussions explaining the mechanisms and factors that influence water flow through soil in unsaturated conditions. This phenomenon is of major importance to the mining industry as water is one of the trigger mechanisms for Acid Rock Generation (ARD) generation. In...
Surface runoff can be the largest component of the surface water budget that controls the quantity of precipitation that could infiltrate through a soil cover into underlying waste material. Site-specific models are routinely used to predict infiltration; however, the direct measurement of...
