Liquid interactions with porous media and the fate of toxic materials
|Title:||Liquid interactions with porous media and the fate of toxic materials||Authors:||Parker, Simon; Crosby, Andrew; Hewitt, Duncan; Herterich, James G.; et al.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10179||Date:||20-Apr-2012||Online since:||2019-04-29T09:03:06Z||Abstract:||Toxic liquid chemicals released into the environment may pose an immediate risk to human health through contact or related vapour hazards. However, they can also interact with surfaces and remain in situ, potentially presenting a subsequent hazard. To improve understanding of the fate of these materials in different environments, the study group investigated interactions between liquid droplets and porous media across a range of different time scales.||metadata.dc.description.othersponsorship:||The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Maths in Industry||Series/Report no.:||European Study Group with Industry||Keywords:||Toxic liquid chemicals; Health hazards; Atmospheric contamination; Capillary suction; Hazardous vapour||Other versions:||http://cimr.uea.ac.uk/workshops/esgi85/liquid-interactions/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||85th European Study Group with Industry, Norwich, United Kingdom, 16-20 2012|
