In this study, changes in the permeability characteristics of a geotextile–polynorbornene liner at different oil pollutant contact times were evaluated. Experiments and numerical analyses were performed, and ASTM D5887 and ASTM D6766 were applied as test methods. The test results show that, when the pollutant contact time and pressure head were 4 h and 75 kPa, the reaction between the geotextile–polynorbornene liner and the pollutant was almost complete. Moreover, a numerical analysis was used to measure the ratio of the concentration of the pollutant that permeated through the geotextile–polynorbornene liner to the initial pollutant concentration at different pollutant contact times. The ratio was between 70 and 83% after a pollutant contact time of 0.5 h and between 0.1 and 1.0% after 4 h. The test and numerical analysis results confirm that, as a reactive medium, the geotextile–polynorbornene liner can effectively prevent the diffusion of oil pollutants by changing its permeability characteristics.
