Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Clay is often used in the liners of landfill repositories to contain waste organic solvents or as a hydraulic barrier agaianst pollutant migration. The experiments were conducted using a geotechnical centrifuge and a compacted clay model corresponding to an equivalent prototype clay layer that was two metres thick acoording to conventional scaling laws.
