Homogenization of Miscible Displacement in Unsaturated Aggregated Soils
A double porosity model is derived for the transport of a solute in an unsaturated soil. The formal homogenization is carried out and the resulting macro-model is dealt with numerically. Comparisons of break-through curves are given for cases with different degrees of aggregation.
