    Chemical osmosis has been suggested to play an important role in the genesis of overpressures and high salinities in sedimentary basins and likely is also of great significance in contaminant transport across clay liners at waste disposal sites. A mathematical model has been developed that simulates osmotic transport of fluid and solute across clay membranes. It is shown that the model replicates the general behaviour of classical chemical osmosis and ultrafiltration experiments. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
