Özet

This study measures the rate of dissolution of Turkish trona as a function of the trona brine concentration and compares the results with a theoretical model of the rate of dissolution from a vertical wall under conditions of natural convection driven by the density gradient in the boundary layer caused by salt concentration differences. Laboratory dissolution experiments were conducted related to the solution mining of a Turkish trona deposit. The average rate of dissolution in water was measured to be 2.8 x 10(-4) g/cm(2) . sec(-1).
