One of the many engineering services we provide at CSI is geomembrane testing. Geomembrane is a low-permeability membrane barrier or liner used with any geotechnical engineering related material for the purpose of controlling fluid or gas migration in a project, system or structure, or soil.
Geomembrane testing is performed to meet several objectives:
Geomembrane Performance testing: performance properties must be determined.
Geomembrane Index testing: did the manufacturing and installation process adhere to quality standards?
Geomembrane Durability testing: identification of the materials used to determine whether or not the appropriate resins and batches were used.
Typical projects in which geomembranes are used include municipal landfills, hazardous solid waste landfills, landfill covers for closure, liquid waste lagoons and spill containment systems. Given the critical nature of these projects, it is clear that geomembrane failure must be avoided, thus the importance of geomembrane testing.
Geomembrane testing falls into two categories: index and performance. Index geomembrane testing is conducted under standardized, ideal and isolated conditions. Given pre-defined criteria, these tests are designed to compare various materials. Performance geomembrane testing is conducted under a particular set of conditions, with the intent of modeling conditions while analyzing geomembrane performance.
