Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Paper presented at the BGA 3rd International Conference in Geoenvironmental Engineering. This chapter reports on a series of optical tests which use an artificial sand to directly observe the growth and migration of gas bubbles for different injection rates, pore water pressure, injection point and soil hetereogeneity. The results can be used to predict airflow patterns for soil column and field studies and potential effects on groundwater flow for in-situ bioremediation.
