These numerical solutions can simultaneously consider the saturated and unsaturated seepage flow and its effect on the deformation of soil structures due to the increase of pore water pressure.
As a result, the reservoir became hypereutrophic, as indicated by the high concentrations of total phosphorus in the sediment and in the water column and of orthophosphate in the water column and sediment pore water (Mozeto, 2003, 2008; Mozeto et al., 2010).
This is very similar to the behavior of 4% agarose at 10 mm/min cross-head speed and should also be caused by the leakage of pore water at the higher stresses reached.
Pore water EC varied considerably between plots (from 220 to 840 [micro]S [cm.sup.-1]), whereas only slight differences were observed in the values measured in late autumn and in midsummer.
For saturated concrete one can theoretically calculate p for given w and T by using steam tables, accounting for the porosity as the given volume available to pore water. This would, however, already for relative low temperatures yield to extremely high pore pressure, which is not realistic.
application (0, 2, 4, and 8 g/kg soil) on pore water velocity and leaching of ammonium and nitrate applied as ammonium
Diffusive transport of radionuclides in porous media is a complex process affected by many parameters, such as the properties of the diffusing species, the properties of the solid itself (pore structure, degree of compaction, adsorption properties, dry density), the geochemistry of the system (mainly pore water chemistry) and the temperature (Kozaki et al., 2001).
If the effect of excess pore water pressure is not considered in the determination of the yield acceleration as is in the existing methods, the yield acceleration does not change from the initial value as is shown in the same figure for [D.sub.r]=40 % and [r.sub.u]=0.
In the sediment, a dynamic equilibrium exists between ammonium dissolved in the pore water and that adsorbed onto either inorganic particles or organic matter (5).
