Hydraulic and Electro-Osmotic Permeability Coefficients
Knowledge of hydraulic and electro-osmotic permeability coefficients is required to assess the amount and time rate of consolidation by electro-osmosis. Usually, the coefficients are determined...

Treatment of Brackish, Sea and Chemically Contaminated Fresh Water by Reverse Osmosis

Electro-Osmotic Dewatering with Polarity Reversals
An increasing body of evidence suggests that reversal of electrode polarity or current direction during electro-osmosis leads to improved consolidation and more efficient dewatering. This...

Electro-Osmotic Consolidation of Soils
The theory for soil consolidation by electro-osmosis is presented and extended to two special cases that may be useful in the field, i.e., electrode reversal to produce more uniform water...

New Apparatus for Consolidation by Electro-Osmosis
Laboratory studies are often useful in observing the phenomena that may occur during electo-osmotic consolidation and measuring the soil parameters that are needed for prediction of behavior...

Electro-Osmosis Applied to Unstable Embankment
In the course of construction of a large dry dock project in Singapore, an 8-m high cofferdam embankment was constructed by end tipping decomposed granite material into the sea. At the...

Numerical Analysis of Electro-Osmotic Flow in Soils
The solution of two-dimensional transient seepage problems under the influence of both electrokinetic and hydrodynamic forces is found using the finite element method. The governing differential...

Electro-Osmotic Stabilization of West Branch Dam
After foundation movement occurred during the construction of West Branch (Mahoning River) Dam, electro-osmotic stabilization was used to reduce pore-water pressures in the foundation,...

Consolidation Under Electrical-Pressure Gradients
Apparatus for measuring the vertical consolidation of soils due to radial drainage under combined pore pressure and voltage gradients is described. An analytical method is outlined which...

Fundamental Aspects of Electro-Osmosis in Soils
A thermodynamic analysis supported by experimental measurements show that electro-osmosis depends fundamentally on the exchange capacity of a soil, water content, and electrolyte concentration...
