High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes are widely used for liners and sealings in geotechnical engineering. Common applications include lining of ponds, dams and dykes, landfill underliners and cover systems, remediation of contaminated sites, waterproofing for tunnels, and beneath highways. This handbook covers all aspects of the field: basic materials, geomembrane manufacture, textured geomembranes, long-term performance and testing, installation and welding of geomembranes, quality assurance and control, leak detection, standards, recommendations and regulations.

From the reviews:
"Dr Muller is well positioned to write such a book, since he is the Division IV.3 leader of the German Institute for Materials Research and Testing ... . Each chapter includes an annotated and world-wide reference list. Also, clear figures (including photographs) and tables accompany each chapter. ... an ideal blend of theory, experiment and practice, to assist practitioners to arrive at a successful lined or covered facility. The book is an essential addition to the library of everyone involved in geomembranes ... ." (Robert M. Koerner, Land Contamination & Reclamation, 2007)
