Automated Permit Review for Hazardous Waste Surface Impoundmentsby Andrew G. Heydinger, Univ of Toledo, Toledo, OH, USA,

Abstract: The United States Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to develop automated permit review for RCRA hazardous waste surface impoundment facilities. The review automation will consist of microcomputer software capable of user-interactive data input and analysis. The review sessions will be controlled by a menu-driven expert system shell with artificial intelligence capabilities. The expert system guidance will supply input data requirements; identify geotechnical analysis capabilities from the available data; assess computational results; and consider worst-case design analysis. The purpose of the paper is to describe geotechnical integrity assessment routines that have been proposed for the permit review package.
