A novel direct shear apparatus to evaluate internal shear strength of geosynthetic clay liners for mining applications
MetadataShow full item record
The use of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) in engineering practice has grown extensively over the past three decades due to application of this material containment applications such non-hazardous solid waste, residential and commercial wastewater management, roadways, and other civil engineering construction projects. This growth has been supported by an enhanced understanding of the engineering properties of GCL as well as hydraulic and mechanical behavior for different applications. In particular, the internal shear strength of GCLs is an important design consideration since GCLs often are ...
