INTERACTION OF INORGANIC LEACHATE WITH COMPACTED POZZOLANIC FLY ASH

This research is part of a study investigating the feasibility of using compacted pozzolanic, western coal flyashes, either by themselves or mixed with sand, as potential landfill liner materials. This study determined the effect of long-term permeation of an inorganic permeant on the permeability and the effluent characteristics of a compacted liner made of fly ash. It was found that it was possible to achieve permeabilities less than 1 x 10 to the power -7 cm/s. The major variables, besides the compaction effort and moisture content, affecting the pemeability is the type and percentage of fly ash used. These and other findings are discussed.
