Description: Technical Note
Purpose: Iron has been used to reduce organic contaminants including high explosives (HE) such as Research Department Explosive (RDX). Work is ongoing at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to develop guidelines for using iron bed reactors to remove RDX in surface water runoff from the impact areas of firing ranges. As part of this work, a mathematical model was developed to gain a better understanding of the experimental results and to provide information for design and operation of these reactors. This model and its application results are described within this technical note (TN).
