Summary

This book, intended for professionals or students taking a course on geoevironmental engineering, addresses landfill design and construction issues in a comprehensive manner. It does this by focusing on all elements of a landfill, from design to completion. The book also looks at actual, state-of-the-art construction procedures in a step-by-step manner, including carefully selected design equations and examples, diagrams, tables, and homework problems.

  • Provides hundreds of useful design equations, specific guidance and protocols for design of a landfill envelope, leachate collection and removal system, and gas collection and control systems.
  • Explains how to evaluate and assess potential problems that affect landfill performance including contaminant transport through landfill liners, landfill stability waste settlement, containment effectiveness, vertical expansions, bioreactor landfills, erosion control, and postclosure uses.
  • Presents students and professionals with extensive coverage on potential problems that affect landfill performance; and provides decisionmaking and problem-solving techniques.

Author Bio

Qian, Xuede :

Xuede Qian is currently a statewide Geotechnical Engineering Specialist with the Waste Management Division, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in hydraulic and geotechnical engineering from Hohai University Nanjing, China, and the Ph.D. degree in geotechnical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is also an adjunct faculty member with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Michigan, with responsibility for teaching a senior/graduate level course on landfill design and construction. He has been actively involved in landfill engineering research and has participated in many landfill design, construction, and remediation projects during the past decade. Dr. Qian has authored numerous technical papers in the geotechnical and geoenvironmental fields. His professional experiences include work for universities, regulatory agencies, and consulting firms.

Koerner, Robert M. : Drexel University

Robert M. Koerner is currently an H. L. Bowman Professor of Civil Engineering with Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in civil engineering from Drexel University and the Ph.D. degree in geotechnical engineering from Duke University. He is an Honorary Member of the ASCE and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Dr. Koerner is the co-author of the first book on geotextiles and has authored or coauthored more than 300 papers on geosynthetics in major engineering journals and for national and international conference proceedings. His latest effort is the fourth edition of the textbook entitled Designing with Geosynthetics. As Director of the Geosynthetic Research Institute, his activities involve all aspects of waste disposal, but focus particularly on the liner and cover containment systems.

Gray, Donald H. : University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Donald H. Gray is a Professor Emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees and the Ph.D. degree in geological and civil engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. His areas of expertise include slope stability and erosion control, engineering properties of solid waste materials, the transport of leachate through landfill liners (under combined advection/diffusion), and containment strategies for landfilled wastes. He has authored numerous technical papers and lectured extensively at training workshops and short courses dealing with geotechnical aspects of waste disposal in the ground. He has served as the organizer and chairman of two ASCE specialty conferences on geotechnical engineering of land disposal. Dr. Gray is also the principal author of two well-regarded reference books on biotechnical and soil bioengineering.
