Project: A simulation model for the coupling of consolidation and contaminant transport for covering liners of waste disposals

project duration
01-JAN-98 – 31-OCT-04
For a reliable assessment of the time varying contaminant transport we need a simulation model based on advanced soil mechanical concepts and insights. The determination of the many parameters entering the model requires extensive experimental research. To take into account the behaviour of the covering liners under varying external loading and for varying hydrologiacal boundary conditions, we must superpone the consolidation problematics on the already complex flow problem.
