This book deals with the design of "barrier systems" which seperate waste from the surrounding environment, and which are intended to prevent contamination of both groundwater and surface waters. Engineers involved with waste management , geotechnics and landfill design will use the book in order to understand the concepts, find out about the latest developments and subsequently apply them to practical applications relevant to the design of barrier systems. The authors discuss all key aspects of the design of barrier systems, including leachate collection, natural barrier such as clayey aqitars, clay liners, geomembrane and composite liners and so on. They have intergrated the engineering and hydrogeological csiderations an the design of waste disposal facilities to provide a sound base form which engineers can work. There is also a comrehensive view of modelling as related to practical landfill design, and key studies give examples of actual field performance.
