ABSTRACT

The infiltration with atmospheric pressure of Dense Non Aqueous Phase Liquid (DNAPL) in a model of porous medium saturated by another liquid is studied when this DNAPL liquid has a contact angle characterizing wetting liquid. The model of the porous medium considered consists of an assembly of solid particles for various forms. The influence of the shape of the particles is studied. The results found show the retention capacity of such porous media in function of the shape of the solid particles.
