The unsaturated vertical drainage model has also been improved to aid in storage computations. The estimation of runoff from the surface of the landfill has been improved to account for large landfill surface slopes and slope lengths. Frozen soil model was added to improve infiltration and runoff predictions in cold regions. The snowmelt model has been replaced with an lsndfill model; the evapotranspiration model has been replaced incorporating wind and humidity effects as well as long hydrilogic radiation losses.

In Version 3the number of layers that can be modeled has been increased. Generate a file for use with external citation management software. Didn't get the message? The Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance HELP model is the most widely applied model to calculate the water balance of cover and bottom liner systems for landfills.
The HELP model is a quasi-two-dimensional, deterministic, water-routing model for determining water balances. Add to Evaluatuon Bibliography. It also accounts for leakage through geomembranes due to manufacturing and installation defects and by vapor diffusion through the liner.

However, the increase of liner leakage due to the deterioration of the clayey soil liner was not considered by the model. Abstract The Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance HELP model is the most widely applied model to calculate the water balance of cover and bottom perfogmance systems for landfills.
Furthermore, measurement results are compared to simulation results of HELP 3. In Version 2, a synthetic weather generator developed by the USDA was added to the model to yield values of precipitation, temperature evalhation solar radiation.
A sufficient validation is an essential precondition for the use of any model in planning. Modeling of unsaturated hydraulic conductivity and flow and lateral drainage computations were improved.
Version 1 of the HELP model mode, a lateral subsurface drainage model and improved unsaturated drainage and liner leakage models into the HSSWDS Hydrologic Simulation Model for Estimating Percolation at Solid Waste Disposal Sitesthis provided a simulation of the entire landfill including leachate collection and liner systems.
Finally based on validation results and requests from the practice, plans for improving the model to a future version HELP 4 D are described. On the landfill Deetz HELP overestimated largely the percolation through the water balance layer resulting from an extremely wet summer due to an underestimation of the water storage in the layer and presumably also due to an underestimation of the actual evapotranspiration.

Return to Home Page. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Computations of leachate recirculation and groundwater drainage into the landfill were added. The paper summarizes validation approaches for HELP 3 focused on cover systems in the literature. The primary purpose of the model is to assist in the comparison of landfill design alternatives as judged by their water balances.
