Electrokinetics and iron precipitation for ground engineering and metal removal

  • David W.S. Faulkner

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Passing an electric current through a wet mass of soil results in the net movement of pore water, and charged species in solution, whose direction of movement is controlled by the polarisation of the electrodes, and the charge on the dissolved species. The use of electric fields for the movement of soil components is termed electrokinetics.
