Ageing of HDPE Geomembranes Used to Contain Landfill Leachate or Hydrocarbon Spills
The ageing of high density polyethylene geomembrane (GM) liners used to minimize advection and diffusion of contaminants in municipal solid waste landfill leachate and in hydrocarbon spills to the environment is examined. The ...
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 ...
Physical response of composite geomembrane / geosynthetic clay liners under simulated landfill conditions
The physical response of composite landfill liners consisting of a geomembrane on top of a geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) are examined under simulated landfill conditions. The deformation and strains of a 1.5-mm-thick ...
