Workshops and seminars are presented on general and specific topics in Florida or at your offices or site.

Topics include:

  • Geomembrane materials selection, specification, and performance
  • Integrated Quality Programs and Construction Quality Assurance Plans
  • Problems with lining systems
  • On-site CQA
  • Testing - in the laboratory and in the field
  • Leak location survey and monitoring technologies
  • Geomembrane material and seam durabilities

Typical Workshop Contents:

  • Typical Lining Systems - Single, double composite lining systems on landfill floors, slopes, steep walls in North America, Europe, S.E. Asia
  • International Standards - US Subtitle C, Subtitle D, German, and English lining system standards, single and double liners
  • Fundamentals of Design - Single/double liners. Smooth/textured geomembranes, interface shear on upper and lower surfaces. Geomembrane protection - protection layers - long term and short-term protection, allowable strain in geomembrane, geotextile mass and structure considerations
  • Liner Problems- Material, design, installation, CQA, and operational causes of liner failures in PVC, HDPE, VLDPE, PP, XR-5 liners
  • Microstructures - Molecular structures, amorphous and crystalline regions, welding, residual stress, stress cracking model, anisotropy
  • Manufacturing - Round die extrusion (blown film), flat die extrusion, co-extrusion, calendering, textures/structures, QC testing
  • Material Properties - Mechanical, physical, and chemical index and performance properties of HDPE, LLDPE, PP, and PVC geomembranes. Stress cracking resistance explained
  • Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs) - Manufacturers, structures, field tests/performance, failure case history
  • Specifications - Parameters, test methods, values, PE/PP
  • Chemical Resistance Testing - EPA Method 9090, ASTM, German BAM, typical results, data analysis
  • Liner Installation - Deployment, subgrade quality, weather, wrinkles, compensation, US-German procedures, repairs
  • Seaming and Destructive Testing - Welding technologies, peel/shear testing, seam specifications, PE/PP/PVC differences, thermal seaming of PVC, seam microstructures and residual stress
  • Nondestructive Testing - air channel pressure, vacuum box, air lance, spark, ultrasonic, electrical (complete liner), infrared seam strength (nondestructive)

TRI-CORP Liner Integrity Course (T-CLIC )

With TRI, I-CORP has formed the TRI-CORP Liner integrity Center (T-CLIC) to certify liner integrity survey operators. In a class room session learn history, theory, limitations, field practices, case histories, and developing technologies illustrated with a double liner model.
