Porous Medium Analysis or Interstitial Liquid Removal from Tank 41 and Tank 3

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

During Tank 41 interstitial liquid removal in fall 2002 and early 2003, analytical analyses of capillary liquid retention and fluid flow in porous saltcake were performed to guide waste processing under the Low Curie Salt program. Tank drainage was completed in June 2003 with the interstitial level at about 68 in. In late June and early July, flush water was added to dissolve hard salt for later liquid retrieval. Data from these subsequent operations has been used to validate the earlier analytical models and assess model uncertainty. Data comparisons suggest the analytical drain model performs well when empirical data are ... continued below

Data from these subsequent operations has been used to validate the earlier analytical models and assess model uncertainty. Data comparisons suggest the analytical drain model performs well when empirical data are available to calibrate the model. Subsequent model forecasts can be expected to be reasonably accurate, provided the pumping rate is steady.
