Numerical simulation of gas flow through unsaturated fractured rock at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
Numerical analysis is used to identify the physical phenomena associated with barometrically driven gas flow through unsaturated fractured rock at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.
Gravity-driven instability in unsaturated fractures
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
The stability of infiltration flow into inclined, unsaturated fractures has been studied. An initially dry natural tuff fracture is used to demonstrate that gravity-driven instability is a separate process form heterogeneity ...
Analysis of groundwater quality in New Washoe City, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
Analysis of 60 groundwater samples for fluoride, iron, and nitrate indicate widely variable conditions throughout New Washoe City, Nevada.
Development of inverse fractal interpolation functions for modeling hydraulic conductivity distributions
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1992)
This study uses fractal interpolation functions (FIF) for the generation of 1-D stochastic fractals and develops the inverse method of FIF (IFIF) for the interpolation of 1-D and 2-D hydraulic conductivity distributions.
Sensitivity analysis of groundwater contamination caused by immobilized gasoline hydrocarbons
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
The potential threat of immobilized gasoline in the vadose zone to groundwater resources is evaluated using a two-dimensional solute transport model. A parametric sensitivity analysis identified the ranking order of most ...
