Clays are used as boundaries for the isolation of landfills and infected websites. they're anticipated as long term garage media for dangerous fabrics and radioactive wastes, and as seals when it comes to geological CO2 sequestration or power garage. Clay homes significantly impact the integrity, potency, and security of those applications. 

Natural and Engineered Clay Barriers presents a transparent view of the basic houses of clay fabrics and the way those houses impact their engineering functions. This quantity makes a speciality of how the mass move houses (hydraulic permeability, fuel fluxes, molecular diffusion, semi-permeable membrane properties), geochemical reactivity (adsorption, dissolution) and mechanical houses of clay obstacles on the macroscale are prompted via phenomena that ensue at clay mineral - water interfaces.

  • Examines clay houses from the molecular to the macroscopic scale
  • Addresses experimental and modeling issues
  • Authored via specialists within the houses of clay barriers
