|Long-term oberservation of the performance of a mineral landfill cover|
Dr. Wolf Ulrich Henken-Mellies, Dr.-Ing. Erwin Gartung,
The water balance of a landfill cover consisting of compacted sandy loam was monitored in a test-field on the municipal landfill at Aurach (Bavaria/Germany). Results of the 4-years monitoring period are presented. During summer months almost no liner leakage occurrs. Precipitation is stored temporarily in the soil cover and subsequently leaves the system via evapotranspiration.
|Lysimeter field study of a clay geosynthetic barrier in a landfill cover system|
Dr. Wolf Ulrich Henken-Mellies, H. Zanzinger
Clay geosynthetic barriers, also known as geosynthetic clay liners (GCL), are often used as elements of landfill cover systems instead of compacted clay liners which are favoured by the technical regulations of the EC and of Germany. As a contribution to the verification of the performance of GCL in landfill applications a lysimeter field study was conducted on a landfill in Bavaria.
