INNOVATIVE OXIDATION PATHWAYS FOR THE TREATMENT OF TRADITIONAL AND EMERGING CONTAMINANTS
Three different topics related to the activation of persulfate, and the application of reactive peroxygen system for recalcitrant contaminant remediation, and regeneration of used activated carbon were studied. An introduction ...
INVESTIGATION OF THE FRACTURE HEALING AND MECHANISM OF ASPHALT BINDERS
The self-healing properties of viscoelastic asphalt materials have been widely recognized among pavement researchers which can result in extended service life of asphalt pavements. The study of asphalt healing has mainly ...
MICROSTRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF UNSATURATED GRANULAR SOILS USING X-RAY COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
This study presents microstructural characterization of partially saturated granular soils using X-ray computed tomography (CT). In the funicular and pendular saturation regimes of unsaturated soils, pore-water assumes a ...
Effects of Oxygenation on Metals Cycling in Lakes
This dissertation summarizes three different evaluations of oxygenation treatments on metals in freshwater lakes conducted from 2007 to 2011. The goal of this work was to evaluate the effectiveness of hypolimnetic oxygenation ...
Modeling the deformation of unsaturated granular pavement subgrade materials
This dissertation presents the development and implementation of a constitutive model to predict the behavior of unsaturated sands. The model is based on critical state and bounding surface concepts and incorporates ...
