Non-expert summaryTheoretical study of the decontamination of a 2D porous material. The decontaminant is immiscible with the contaminant and neutralize it through interfacial reaction. Two scenarios are considered with either the contaminant filling partially the pore space, or fully. This reactive-diffusive problem is solved using a homogenisation technique that separates the local pore-scale dynamics from the macro-scale temporal evolution. The effect of the porous material is accounted for by the model.
Non-expert summaryExperimental study of the permeation of CWA simulants through different layers of porous building materials: brick, cinder block, wall board, wood. The breakthrough time is measured in a specially designed cell. Anisotropy of the permeation is observed for anisotropic material such as wood. Surface decontamination is tested and shown effective.
