A lumped-parameter model is developed for a uniform sand with residual amounts of trichloroethylene (TCE). Using gamma attenuation to measure porosity and TCE saturation locally, the relationship between the mass transfer coefficient and TCE saturation is determined for a constant flow velocity. The technique developed here provides valuable information about the dissolution process for small residual saturations of nonaqueous phase liquids.
