Summary:
Landfilling, by all indications, will continue to be the predominant method of solid waste disposal. Traditional civil engineering drainage medium (i.e. sand or gravel) are being replaced by geosynthetics which are much thinner in an effort to create more usable volume for waste. This study examines the effect of compressive creep of geonets as used in leachate collection and detection systems, and how it affects in-plane drainage. HDPE geonet was subjected to a compressive load of 110 psi. The in plane flow rate of municipal solid waste leachate was measured, as well as the change in thickness, for 120 days. In addition, geonet samples were placed between two pieces of HDPE geomembrane. These samples were subjected to a normal load of 140 psi for 120 days. The samples were then inspected for sign of geonet imprint into the geonet, or for strand layover.
