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, ...
Water retention curve and hydraulic conductivity function of highly compressible materials
Other titre : Courbe de rétention d’eau et fonction de conductivité hydraulique des matériaux hautement compressibles
Abstract: A model capable of describing the suction-induced consolidation curve (void ratio function) and water retention curve (WRC) of highly compressible materials (HCM) is developed, validated and finally applied to ...
Environmental, geotechnical and hydraulic behaviour of a cellulose-rich by-product used as alternative cover material
Abstract: Deinking by-product (DBP), a cellulose-rich by-product produced in the early stages of the paper recycling process, has been used as alternative material for the construction of cover systems for municipal waste ...
Determination of the hydraulic conductivity function of a highly compressible material based on tests with saturated samples
Abstract: An alternative procedure to determine the hydraulic conductivity function (k-function) based on relationships between saturated hydraulic conductivity and void ratio and between air-entry value and void ratio ...
Anaerobic biodegradation of an organic by-products leachate by interaction with different mine tailings
Abstract: Deinking by-products from paper recycling has been used as cover material on acid-producing tailings. Due to remaining cellulose, anaerobic degradation leads to the production of an organic-rich leachate, which ...
