Modelling Changes of Hydraulic Properties Induced by Biomass Growth in Unsaturated Porous Media

Iacopo Borsi, Antonio Fasano, Angiolo Farina, Mario Primicerio


The effect of the microbial growth on hydraulic properties of porous media is
a topic studied for many applications, such as oil recovery, wastewater treatment and bioremediation of contaminated soils or groundwaters.

We shal focus on the biodegradation processes, where various interactions between physical an chemical phenomena have to be taken into account in order to get useful and realistic models.
