About this book

This book summarises the results of 27 research projects carried out within a DM15 million integrated research programme in Germany. The results show that the mechanical properties of earthen and cut-off materials can be improved and that testing methods and apparatus are available for the determination of critical values. The research programme provides a deeper understanding of the performance of construction materials and the long-term behaviour of landfill liners and this will all help in the future design of safer landfills.


* Introduction * List of projects Research overview * Mechanical loading on earthen liners,damage due to subsidence * Water balance, the risk of desiccation in earthen liners * Contaminant transport, fundamentals and minimisation * Physical, chemical and biochemical influences on mineral liner materials * Construction techniques, quality management * Cut-offs walls * Safety and system amalysis * Geotextile protective layer system for geomembranes * Leachate drainage systems * Conclusinons and outlook Project reports * Development of a safety concept for landfill liner systems * Influence of mechanical loading on the performance of mineral landfill liners * Investigation of limiting values of deformability for mineral landfill liners by simulation of deformations in 1:1 scale tests * Construction tchniques in the construcion of composite landfill liners * Development of proposals for liner structures - theoretical and experimental investigation * Redox-dependent mineralogical and chemical changes in clayey landfill basal liners and their soil mechanical effects * Maintenance of the functioning of landfill drainage systems * Self-healing behaviour with regard to permeability of mineral sealing materials in disturbed landfill liners/liner systems * Long-term behaviour of earthen layers in landfill basal liners, moisture balance under thermal effects * Thermal effects on the barrier efficiency of composite liners - test field measurements * Non-isothermal water and vapour movement below landfills: laboratory experiments on the computer simulations of desiccation in mineral liners * Experimental and numerical studies of contaminant transport through mineral liners and resulting improvements in liner materials * Investigation of the feasibility of mining techniques for the subsequent lining of existing landfills * Hydraulic control mechanisms for landfill liner systems * Geomembranes under punctiform loads * Investigation into the long-term integrity of protective materials for geomembranes in landfill basal liners * Practice-oriented investigation to improve geotextile protective layer system for geomembranes with regard to their long-term protective efficacy * Investigations into the influence of the drainage aperture in plastic drainage pipes to optimise their long-term stability under landfill conditions * Design of capillary barriers for capping of landfillls and contaminated sites * Effects of overburden pressure and degree of drainage on the soil-water characteristics of earthen liners * Stress-strain behaviour of high-density slurry materials for groundwater protection cut-off walls around landfills and contaminated land, development of practice oriented test methods and assessment criteria * Optimising processing techniques for mineral landfill liner construction * Permeability and stress-strain behaviour fo fibre-reinforced soils for landfill liner systems * Investigations into the frost susceptibility of mineral landfill liners, problems affecting stability and precautions to be taken * Influence of filter cake growth and solid matter shift on the quality, feasibility and cost of slurry trence cut-off walls * Innovative construction materials for waste containment barriers: biochemical durability and contaminant transport * Designing a method of total area leakage monitoring for landfill liners * Appendix
