The Second Edition of GEOTECHNOLOGY OF WASTE MANAGEMENT provides an up-to-date discussion of environmental geotechnology, an increasingly important area of study and real-world application in the field of civil engineering. Unlike encyclopedic references that provide little context for understanding and applying the subject matter, Oweis and Khera's text guides students through practical discussions of solid wastes, their index properties, settlement characteristics, strength behavior, and hydraulic properties. Landfill design coverage includes site investigation and selection, geosynthetic and soil liner systems, leachate generation and detection, erosion control and caps, gas generation and management, foundation and slope stability, and applicable regulatory guidelines.
