<p><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">Results of triaxial tests performed in saturated and unsaturated compacted soil specimens with different interstitial fluids are presented. Tests were carried out in order to study the influence of the fluid relative dielectric constant, <em>ε<sub>r</sub></em>...

This paper presents results of field and laboratory permeability tests aimed at evaluating the performance of mineral barriers for the containment of organic liquids (Non Aqueous Phase Liquids, NAPL). Experimental landfills were constructed following optimal ranges of variation of soil index properties proposed previously and the performance of the landfills was...

This paper presents the development of an instrumented channel for two-dimensional multiphase flow of automotive fuels in unsaturated soils. Flow experiments were performed using water or diesel in an eolian sand at residual water saturation, a particular case of multiphase flow. Aspects such as the visual monitoring of the infiltration experiments and the gr...
