CHLORIDE MIGRATION THROUGH CLAYEY SILT UNDERLAIN BY FINE SAND OR SILT

The authors of this technical paper obtained chloride diffusion coefficients from diffusion tests performed on a single isolated layer of clayey silt, silt, or sand, respectively. The authors also examined the advective-diffusive movement of chloride through a two-layer soil system consisting of a compacted clayey silt underlain by a fine sand or silt. The agreement between the experimental results and model predictions indicate that existing solute-transport theory may adequately estimate chloride migration through a compacted clay layer and underlying sand or silt layer at near-saturated conditions for Darcy velocities at least up to the maximum value examined. Diffusion dominated chloride transport in these tests.
