AbstractSoil vapor extraction (SVE) is a proven technology that can remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the subsurface effectively if the conditions are favorable. However, most Systems are designed by empirical methods or engineering judgement based on results of pilot tests. An attempt is made to develop a mathematical model for the technology so that optimal operating parameters can be obtained. The pressure distributions induced by multiple-well extractions are obtained by superimposing an existing analytical solution. Concentrations of VOCs as a function of time and space are obtained by numerical simulation of the migration and fate of VOC. The effectiveness of SVE systems using different operating parameters is evaluated on the basis of the quantity of contaminant removed. The developed mathematical model provides the necessary engineering design tools to evaluate different operation scenarios.
