Abstract : The research investigated the use of a geotechnical centrifuge to model nonaqueous phase liquids (NPALs) flowing through a porous media. Experiments modeled saturated and unsaturated flow through homogeneous and heterogeneous sands, smooth parallel plates, and rough rock fissures. The research validated the use of the centrifuge to model flow processes, however, there are limitations and restrictions on the nature and type of problems which can be investigated.
