This is a factor that should be considered where significant heads can develop over the primary GCL giving rise to high hydraulic gradients that could cause internal erosion. 3 m), this is unlikely to be a problem. However if the LCS fails or if its operation is discontinued, the build-up in leachate head could cause problems due to internal erosion. As indicated by Rowe and Orsini (2003), some GCLs are much more prone to this problem than others. CONTAMINANT TRANSPORT IMPLICATIONS Contaminant transport through landfill barrier systems is commonly modelled using the program POLLUTE (Rowe and Booker 1995; 1998; 2005).

28 Peak shear strength variability was found to increase linearly with normal stress, but to be insensitive to specimen conditioning procedures. Geomembrane Liners Geomembranes are planar, relatively impermeable polymeric sheets. Due to their low permeability, they make excellent liners for fluid retaining structures. There are many different types of geomembranes and the selection of a particular type depends upon the application in which it will be used. The aging process of HDPE geomembranes can be envisioned as simultaneous combination of physical aging and chemical ageing.

Table 4 shows the average values of the peak friction angle for different geosynthetics interface and different tests in static and dynamic conditions Analysing some typical geosynthetic/geosynthetic interfaces it is possible to point out the following observations (Carrubba and Massimino, 1998). 1) The initial values of friction angles in static and dynamic condition are very similar; even if due to the viscous nature of geosynthetics and the soil interface dynamic shear strength is influenced by the strain rate.
