Evaluation of the effectiveness of a cover with capillary barrier effect to control percolation into a waste disposal facility
Abstract: The goal of an instrumented experimental plot constructed on the Saint-Tite-des-Caps landfill site was to evaluate the field behaviour and the performance of a cover with capillary barrier effect (CCBE) to ...
Predicting the diversion length of capillary barriers using steady state and transient state numerical modeling: Case study of the Saint-Tite-des-Caps landfill final cover
Abstract: Covers with capillary barrier effect (CCBE) have already been proposed to meet regulatory requirements for landfill final covers. Modeling of CCBE may be a relatively complex and time consuming task. Simpler, ...
Assessment of the design of an experimental cover with capillary barrier effect using 4 years of field data
Abstract: One important step in the design of inclined covers with capillary barrier effect (CCBE) is the determination of the water diversion length (DL). Numerical simulations can predict the DL more precisely than ...
