Abstract

This report reviews the state of the art with respect to permeability determination and sanitary landfills. Characteristics of the soil which determine the permeability are given. Processes which can change the permeability are discussed. Darcy's Law, the mathematical basis of permeability and its validity are discussed. Laboratory and field methods for determining the permeability are also discussed. Applications of determined permeability for design and management of landfills are also indicated.
