DETERMINING THE LENGMUR COEFFICIENT OF THE FILTRATION PROBLEM
Filtration of suspension in a porous medium is actual in the construction of tunnels and underground structures.
A model of deep bed filtration with size-exclusion mechanism of particle capture is considered. The inverse filtration
problem – finding the Langmuir coefficient from a given concentration of suspended particles at the porous medium outlet is solved using the asymptotic solution near the concentrations front. The Langmuir coefficient constants are obtained by the least squares method from the condition of best approximation of the asymptotics to exact solution. It is shown that the calculated parameters are close to the coefficients of the model, and the asymptotics well approximates the exact solution.
