Abstract Geomembranes made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) have a high percent crystallinity and are therefore of concern with regard to stress cracking. A review of the literature plus the authors' field exhuming of various sites-of-opportunity gave rise to twenty-five (25) situations where stress cracking of HDPE geomembranes has occurred since the introduction of the liner material in 1980. The stress cracks varied from very small lengths of a few centimeters to large shattering types of failure. All failures have occurred on exposed geomembranes where ultraviolet light exposure, high temperature oxidation and low temperature contraction are continuously ongoing processes.
