The paper describes how rules are used as a knowledge representation formalism in an expert system called F-Cover. F-Cover assists RCRA permit reviewers in evaluating performance standards for final covers at hazardous waste landfills. The paper shows how a goal tree for final cover evaluation was expressed in the form of rules. Rule sets were established for identifying a cover's layer structure and basic design values, for identifying design deficiencies in the cover, and for preparing a design deficiency report.
