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.
