Hydrologic Measurements with Flexible Liners and Other Applications (Hardcover)
This book provides hydrologists the information needed for the characterization of contaminated subsurface hydrologic sites. It explains how to seal boreholes, map contaminant distribution in a formation, map the flow zones, and measure the hydraulic head distribution through a single flexible liner. Results of the measurement methods provided demonstrate the reality and reliability of the unique FLUTe techniques. These measurements help to predict contaminant migration and aid in the design of a groundwater remedy. The limitations of several methods are provided to allow an intelligent choice of methods and a well-informed selection of devices among the alternative methods. The mechanics of flexible liner systems are explained with examples of applications beyond the hydrologic measurements such as relining of piping.
The first book on a modern technology that is replacing traditional technology globally
Written by the inventor of the FLUTe technology with 25 years' experience with successful applications
Describes FLUTe technology in detail, including the theory behind the tools, how to use the tools, and the mathematics used to interpret the data generated by the tools
Provides step-by-step explanations of how to conduct fieldwork and how to analyze the data gathered
Minimizes reliance on mathematical explanations and uses illustrations and examples that allow readers to understand the technology
This book is of interest to environmental professionals, mine operators, petroleum engineers, geophysicists who use these methods or are considering using these methods for remediation of groundwater contamination, academics, students, and regulators.
