bentonite
Vast regions of the globe are covered by tropical soils, increasing the perspective of using them for barrier design at solid/liquid disposal facilities. They comprise diverse pedological taxonomies, but have common features, specially the dominant mineral composition of quartz, kaolinite clay and Fe-Al-Mn oxides/hydroxides. Despite the vast occurrence, sometime...

Compacted clayey tropical soils have great potential to be used as barriers in waste disposal facilities, considering that some technical requirements are fulfilled (e.g. hydraulic conductivity; compatibility after disposal; shear strength; swelling/cracking, etc). In turn, the bentonite addition is relevant for the cases where the hydraulic conductivity must be...

<p>Compacted tropical soils have great potential to be used in barriers, once some technical issues are correctly addressed, including low hydraulic conductivity and compatibility to the disposed fluids. This paper involves a laboratorial<br /> study of the hydraulic conductivity of mixtures of a tropical soil sample and bentonite and also their comp...
