Document Type: Journal Paper


Computer programs for the design of methane migration control systems around sanitary landfills are described. These programs allow the effectiveness of individual designs to be evaluated and allow comparison of alternative designs. The effects of varying pumping rates on active systems can be assessed. In addition to describing the mathematical principles used in the computer programs, results for typical control installations are shown in a manner that allows for comparing their effectiveness.
