Design and Construction of Liner Systems

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in this lecture you will be able to:

  • Understand the hydraulic performance of different liner systems.
  • Understand the factors controlling performance of liners.
  • Calculate the flow through a liner system.
  • Estimate the service life of liners under harsh environment.

Description:
Lining systems are used at the base of landfills, ponds and other fluid containments to prevent the flow of water, contaminants and other fluids into the ground. A typical liner system may consist of compacted clay, geosynthetic clay, and/or a geomembrane. Most civil and environmental engineers need a working understanding of basic concepts to gain confidence in dealing with a variety of liners and their proper design and construction.

This lecture is designed so that participants can better understand liners and learn how to design and construct a safe and sustainable liner. All key concepts will be explained and emphasis will be placed on the practical application of the information provided.

Course Outline:

  • Compacted clays; specification, design, construction
  • Geosynthetic clay liners; hydraulic performance
  • Geomembranes; leackage, service life
  • Selection of a proper liner system

Who Should Attend:
Those who deal with construction related geotechnical issues or need to build background on geoenvironmental analyses & design including:

  • Civil, environmental & transportation engineers/technicians
  • Geologists, city & public works officials/planners
