Assessment of Influence of Technological Parameters on Peat Extraction
Tver State Technical University, A. Nikitin Street 22, 170026, Tver, Russia
The article evaluates the weather and hydrological impact on geotechnology when fragmented peat is milled and dried at a peat deposit. The amount of moisture feeding the fragmented peat of a deposit was studied and was determined to depend on the ground water level. The influence of drainage on the water regime of a high-more peat deposit and that of weather conditions on ground water level fluctuations over time have been evaluated at production sites with an open drainage network. When a peat deposit is drained, under the action of gravitation (the pressure differential in the ground and a drain), ground water seeps into the drains and is transported along them, down-grade, to the collection network and diverted from the drained area. The processes of moisture movement at a peat deposit help evaluate and justify measures to improve its water-air regime which is used in the development of intensive draining methods for a peat deposit and the maintenance of the necessary water regime in peat deposits.
