Assessment of Geosynthetics Interface Friction for Slope Barriers of Landfill

  title={Assessment of Geosynthetics Interface Friction for Slope Barriers of Landfill},
  author={J. Gourc and R. Reyes-Ram{\'i}rez and P. Villard},
Stability of Geosynthetic Lining Systems is, for a geotechnical standpoint, a complex matter. Three geomechanical questions were identified: sliding of the geosynthetic lining system on slope, pull-out strength of the geosynthetic anchorage at the top of the slope, rain erosion of the cap cover. Research programmes carried out in France on these topics, , are presented. Use of laboratory facilities (mainly different Inclined Planes) and large scale experimentations on actual slopes is… Expand
Interface behaviour of geosynthetics in landfill cover systems under static and seismic loading conditions
Modern landfills are equipped with multi-layered liners, including geosynthetic-geosynthetic and soil-geosynthetic interfaces. The interfaces represent weakness surfaces where the shear strength is aExpand
Frictional characteristics of geosynthetic–geosynthetic and geosynthetic–soil interfaces determined by the inclined plane apparatus
Abstract The problem of managing the unneeded and unusable materials is a serious challenge for modern societies. The progress of civilization is accompanied by an increase of the human population.Expand
Geosynthetics anchorage with wrap around: experimental and numerical studies
ABSTRACT: Geosynthetics are used as reinforcing elements in a wide variety of structures: reinforced slopes and walls; embankments on soft soils; piled embankment; reinforcement in the base layers ofExpand
Interface shear: Towards understanding the significance in geotechnical structures
It is well known that low strength natural materials under foundations and in slopes can cause bearing capacity and slope failures. With the increased use of manufactured materials such as HDPEExpand
Interface behaviour and stability of geocomposite drain/soil systems
Landfill covers are designed as impermeable caps on top of waste containment facilities after the completion of landfill operations. Geocomposite drain (GD) materials consist of a geonet or geospacerExpand
Shear Strength of Unsaturated Soil-Geotextile Interfaces
Geotextiles are widely used in various applications including earthen structures, which are often built in unsaturated soil conditions. The design of these earthen structures is often dominated byExpand

Stability and anchorage of geosynthetic systems on slopes: development of a new designing tool
In Geomembrane Liner Systems (GLS) or all other systems involving the use of geosynthetics on slopes, the “geosynthetic” complex constitutes a preferential slip plane for the layers (topsoil, gravel,Expand
Theoretical Versus Experimental Modeling of the Anchorage Capacity of Geotextiles in Trenches
The behavior of the anchorage of geotextile sheets at the top of a slope is a decisive factor when determining the dimensions of geosynthetic lining systems on slopes. In order to optimize theExpand
Slope stability of lining systems—experimental modeling of friction at geosynthetic interfaces
Abstract The use of geosynthetic lining systems (GLS) is increasingly widespread in hydraulic civil engineering structures. Studying their stability generally requires calculating their frictionExpand
Design methods for geosynthetic anchor trenches on the basis of true scale experiments and discrete element modelling
Analytical models are proposed for analysing the mechanisms whereby geosynthetic anchors fail. The cases of run-out and L- or V-shaped anchor trenches are considered. An analytical expression isExpand
Stability and tension considerations regarding cover soils on geomembrane lined slopes
Abstract The occurrence of cover soil instability in the form of sliding on geomembranes is far too frequent. Additionally, there have been cases of wide width tension failures of the underlyingExpand
Dynamics-based interpretation of the interface friction test at the inclined plane
The inclined plane test is used to determine either soil–geosynthetic or geosynthetic–geosynthetic interface properties, especially in cases where the stress normal to the interface is small. TheExpand
Analysis of geosynthetic lining systems (GLS) undergoing large deformations
Abstract The barrier systems used for the sloping sides of waste storage facilities are made up of different geosynthetic and mineral components. The distribution of forces within each component isExpand
