Experimental Analytical Simulation Method in Landfill Geomembrane Liner Design

Hessamallah Shakeri, Mohssen Shoeybi, and Jonathan L. Salvacion

Abstract—The Environmental concerns lead to consider geomemberane liner as a major parameter in landfill design for inhibition of their leachate to the soil and groundwater migration. This study is conducted to determine the effect of physico-mechanical properties of geomembrane material on appropriate thickness in landfill liner with consider to landfill geometry. Experimental data (i.e. Tensile strength and friction angle) by using analytical simulation method with association statistical analysis based on conventional theory was investigated and validated with finite element modeling using ANSYS Software. In addition, effect of safety factor contribution in landfill site condition and friction angle of geomembrane was studied. Moreover, regression and correlation analysis to describe the relationship between the site condition variables and corresponding thickness were performed and equations of fitted models were determined.

Index Terms—Geomembrane, thickness, modeling, landfill.
