Long-Term Performance of HDPE Geomembranes as Landfill Liners
High density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes are normally used as part of a composite liner for waste containment facilities such as municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills and heap leach pads. Field conditions, which include ...
Longevity of HDPE Geomembranes in Geoenvironmental Applications
With sufficient time, a high density polyethylene geomembrane will degrade and lose its engineering properties until ruptures signal the end of its service-life. This thesis examines the longevity of nine different ...
