Evaluation on the Tensile Force of Geotextile and Geomembrane Used on the Side Slope of a Waste Landfill
Geomembranes are installed on the bottom and sides of a landfill to protect the surrounding ground and water from being polluted by the leachate from the waste. Geotextile is also placed over the geomembrane to protect it from mechanical damage. In order to evaluate the tensile forces of geotextile and geomembrane, centrifugal model tests were conducted in the laboratory. This paper presents the results of these centrifugal tests and compares them with the calculated values based on the ordinary ultimate force equilibrium method and FEM analyses.
