Geosynthetic Testing for Waste Containment Applications

Editor(s): R Koerner

26 papers help the reader with the selection, testing, design, and use of geosynthetics. The peer-reviewed volume:

• Focuses on the many available geosynthetic material tests that are performed in isolation (index tests)

• Contrasts these tests with soil/geosynthetic material tests (performance tests)

• Determines if, and what type of, full scale field tests are available

• Identifies needs for modification of these tests, or for additional tests that better predict field performance than those that are currently available.

Chapters include:

• Chemical Resistance of Geomembranes

• Test Methods and Procedures to Evaluate Geomembranes

• Chemical Resistance of Geotextiles and Other Geosynthetics

• Test Methods and Procedures to Evaluate Geotextiles and Other Geosynthetics

• and Performance Behavior of Several Geosynthetic Systems.

For waste facility owners (both private and public); permitting agencies; consulting engineers and testing firms in waste industry. Also geotechnical engineers; environmental engineers; hydraulics engineers.
