Abstract: Synthetic liners, also known as flexible membrane liners (FMLs), have been used increasingly since the early 1970s to contain chemical and hazardous wastes because of their low permeability and long-term resistance to chemical attack from these wastes. This paper focuses on the approach and procedures used for design of liner components associated with geosynthetics.
