The objective of the research is to develop guidelines for identifying when settlement or seismic loading presents a threat to the integrity of geosynthetic elements for both side slope and cover systems in landfills, and advance further investigation for parameters which influence the strains in the barrier systems. A numerical model of landfill with different side slope inclinations are developed by the two-dimensional explicit finite difference program FLAC 7.0, beam elements with a hyperbolic stress-strain relationship, zero moment of inertia, and interface elements on both sides were used to model the geosynthetic barrier systems. The resulting numerical model demonstrates the load-displacement behavior of geosynthetic interfaces, including whole liner systems and dynamic shear response. It is also through the different results in strains from the influences of slope angle and interface friction of geosynthetic liners to develop implications for engineering practice and recommendations for static and seismic design of waste containment systems.
