Multilayer Anti-Seepage Liners Based on Bentonite Mats: Comparison of Their Effectiveness

  • Yu. M. KosichenkoEmail author
  • O. A. Baev

Multilayer and combined anti-seepage liners, including bentonite mats, geomembranes, geotextile, rock fills, and soil are considered. The effectiveness of the multilayer bentonite mat liner is evaluated for the Don Main Canal as an example.
