Abstract

Solute transport in unsaturated porous media can be viewed as a coupled phenomenon with water

and heat transport, together with mechanical behaviour of media. In this paper, solute transport is formulated

mathematically considering heat and water flow in deformable porous media. Advection, dispersion and

diffusion of chemical species in the liquid phase are considered. Convection and conduction for heat flow is

taken into account. Water flow is considered in both vapour and liquid phases. Equilibrium equation, energy

conservation, mass conservation and linear momentum for water, gas and solute are written and solved

simultaneously using finite element method. The developed model is validated by solving some examples and

comparing results with the results of experimental observation.

Abstract

In saturated soils, heating induces thermal expansion of both grains and the pore fluid. Lower thermal expansion coefficient of aggregates results in the increase of pore pressure and reduction of the effective stress besides subsequent volume changes due to the dissipation of pore pressure and heat transfer. Dissipation of thermally induced pore pressure with time is a coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) phenomenon, involving gradients of pore pressure and temperature, hydraulic and thermal flows within the mass of soil and changes in the mechanical properties with temperature. The objective of this paper is presentation of a numerical method to determine the effect of temperature on consolidation of clays. In this regard, the finite element code, PISA is used for one dimensional THM analysis of porous media. The analysis performed using both linear elastic and elastoplastic Cam clay models. Modified Cam clay model was applied in elastoplastic analysis. Variation of temperature, displacements and pore pressure determined with time and compared with numerical solutions of other researchers. Also it was indicated that implementation of coupled THM analysis yields better results for displacements compared to the hydro mechanical (HM) one. Application of elastoplastic constitutive model instead of linear elastic one indicated that preconsolidation pressure has an important effect on results of analysis.
