Abstract

If the settlement of the waste occurs in a landfill, the geomembrane will be pulled down along a side slope. Evaluation of this downdrag force should be very important for the anchorage design. Authors conducted the large scale field test and five types of geotextiles on a geomembrane, and six types of geomembranes were tested. The test results indicat geotextiles have the cooling effect of geomembrane and decreasing thermal stress. The downdrag force depends on a type of geomembrane.
