To facilitate dual-track welding and, thus, air-channel testing, it is recommended that the subgrade be smooth- drum rolled prior to placement of the PVC geomembrane.

It is intended to guide geomembrane users toward the appropriate evaluation techniques to assess geomembrane seam quality. The end result of the accelerated test is that EPI can correct flawed seams about 10 minutes after they’re made, instead of nearly three days later. "The procedure has allowed us to make any corrections in the seam before the problem gets away from us and a lot of flawed product is made," said Fred Rohe, [former] president of EPI.

The quality control program during the installation stage consists of inspecting the membrane liner, laying and welding the liner, followed by comprehensive weld seam testing; testing of the installed membrane liner is continuously performed during production process with the test results provided for each roll of membrane.

Abstract. This study attempted to develop of a method for detecting failures on welded seams between liner sheets.

To identify the location of faulty seams, thermal images taken by a thermo graphic device were used to determine the unique temperature distribution on the faulty : Hirofumi Nakayama, Takayuki Shimaoka, S.

Ueda. When a geomembrane seam specimen is tested in the peel mode, the material adjacent to the weld is bent at the same time as a tensile force is applied to it. As a result of bending, large and atypical stresses are imposed on the bent material; particularly at the outer fibers which is dependant on the thickness of the geomembrane.

There are different test methods available to test all types of geomembrane seams. Specific test methods are required for each geomembrane due to the physical properties of the geomembrane.

Air Pressure Test. Lap joints shall be used to weld panels of HOPE geomembrane together in the field. A minimum overlap of 3-inches shall be used. Seams shall be fusion or extrusion-welded and as prescribed by the Geomembrane Manufacturer and approved by the Engineer.

For production seaming of geomembrane panels, fusion seaming is the preferred method. This practice covers the nondestructive testing of field seams in geomembranes using the spark test. A suspect area is indicated by the generation of a spark.

The test is applicable to seams made by the extrusion method, seams made by using welding tape (a strip of the same type of material as the geomembrane, that is welded over adjacent sections of geomembrane.

GRI-GM19 (), “Standard Specification for Seam Strength and Related Properties of Thermally Bonded Polyolefin Geomembranes”. This paper examines the long-term durability of two dual wedge welded mm-thick high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes (GMBs).

The two GMBs, which had different resins, and the welds initially met relevant standards. The use of geomembranes as barrier materials to restrict liquid migration from one location to another in soil and rock, and the large number of seam methods and types used in joining these geomembrane sheets, has created a need for standard tests by which the various seams can be compared and the quality of the seam systems can be nondestructively evaluated.

Nondestructive testing of geomembranes can be divided into two general categories. The first is testing as part of construction quality control, specifically the testing of the seams and patches. The other category is leak location methods for locating leaks in the geomembrane panels as well as in the seams.1 Nondestructive Testing of SeamsAuthor: Glenn T.

Geomembrane Assurance Founders' have more than Thirty Five years of Experience in the Geomembrane Liner Industry.

Our experience consists of site supervision, construction quality assurance, general consulting for water, wastewater, solid waste disposal systems, involved in the fabrication and installation of geosynthetic membranes.

Infrastructure Whether you are building a drainage system or installing a landfill cap, there is a range of products in the AquaMaster ® family that are designed for your unique geosynthetic / geomembrane infrastructure or landfill requirements.

Our geomembrane liners are constructed with advanced coatings that enhance abrasion, chemical, UV and hydrostatic resistance. The operator has chosen not to use a geomembrane or Geosyn-thetic Clay Liner (GCL) to seal the landfill.

In order to limit the infiltration of water inside the landfill the solution retained was the DRAINTUBE system, a drainage geo-composite composed of a filter, a drain core and regularly spaced mini-pipes (figure 1).File Size: 1MB.

Seams are minimized in corners, odd-shaped geometric locations and outside corners. A seam is considered a separate entity if it is the principal attachment that joins two or more panels.

Fusion Weld System Geomembrane liners are welded by Fusion Weld method using a self-propelled hot air or hot wedge welding machine. Surfaces should be level and free of all sharp rocks (all rock and stone greater than diameter), objects, vegetation and stubble.

(Soil sterilization may be necessary to kill roots and certain types of grasses.) The subgrade surface should provide a unyielding foundation for the geomembrane with no sharp or abrupt changes or break in grade. Geomembrane sample designation and preparation This ongoing project is investigating the year durability of PVC geomembranes, PVC chemical fusion, and hot-wedge–welded seams.
