GEOSYNTHETIC CLAY LINERS. PROCEEDINGS OF AN INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, NUREMBERG, GERMANY, 14-15 APRIL 1994

The purpose of the symposium was to pool the experience gained in Germany and the United States on geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs). GCLs are composite liners with bentonite, either in powder or granular form, contained between two textile layers, generally geotextiles, which are bonded by needle-punching or other methods. Transportation applications of GCLs are rapidly growing. The various products have been used beneath airfield pavements for the containment of deicing liquids, to protect against accidentally spilled chemicals from highway accidents (also roadway deicing salts), and for groundwater protection at fueling stations and related depots. Several papers in this book relate to, and describe, these applications.
