Design and Construction of Liner Systems

2 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this lecture, you will be able to:

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

Lining systems are used at the base of landfills, ponds and other fluid containments to prevent water flow, 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 various 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; leakage, 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 and design, including:

  • Civil, Environmental and Transportation Engineers/Technicians
  • Geologists, city and public works officials/planners
