Abstract
Heat is generated in municipal waste containment facilities due to the chemical and biochemical evolution of waste. Sometimes it is required to check if the level of heat generated during the deposit lifetime may damage or reduce the isolating properties of the liners. That verification relies on appropriate evaluation of heat and moisture transfer through the barrier as well as the evolution of stress fields. This paper presents an example of such verification based on a coupled thermo-hydro-me...
