Soil vapor extraction (SVE) or soil venting is related with Monte Carlo simulation of critical soil characteristics. The correlation yielded a probability based nomograph that may be utilized by design engineers to define the probability of contaminant retrieval from different configured well systems. Parameters involved are air flow rate, soil air permeability, air viscosity, absolute pressure at extraction well, absolute ambient pressure, radius of vapor extraction well, radius influence of vapor extraction well and thickness of well screen.
