Certain aspects of flow and contaminant migration of hazardous liquids through soils are addressed. A fine-grained soil and fluids commonly encountered in hazardous sites, were considered. The effects of permeant characteristics and testing conditions on hydraulic conductivity were addressed. In addition, breakthrough curves for an organic contaminant were obtained; it was shown that mass transport must be considered in the design of liners, due to the potential danger of groundwater contamination.
