In order to research the corrosive state of landfill liner system, which affected by landfill leachate, and explore its strength and microstructure properties, contacting reaction between landfill leachate and compacted clay landfill liner system was simulated. Then, clay samples of different layers were investigated by unconfined compressive testing, shear testing and static nitrogen adsorption testing. The results showed that corrosion degree of clay samples caused by landfill leachate increased with the decrease of deepness of clay. And the maximum unconfined compressive strength (UCS) decreased obviously along with the shear strength. The UCS at 10cm was 53.1% that of layer at 50cm and the shear strength was 40.4~62.4% at 10cm that of 50cm. The static nitrogen adsorption testing showed that the shape of clay particle was bottleneck like, and with the decrease of the depth of clay, there was a decrease in the number of micropores whose size was no smaller than 6nm. And the number of pores which was between 2nm and 5nm increased. In addition, there also appeared micropore which was smaller than 2nm. And the average pore size was decreased from 5.083nm at 50cm to 3.768nm at 10cm.
