Abstract

The design of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) landfills requires the selection of representative MSW material properties. The profession's understanding of the mechanical response of MSW has evolved significantly in recent years, but many aspects of the response of MSW remain uncertain. A research project involving five organizations was conducted to systematically evaluate the factors that affect the static and dynamic properties of MSW. A summary of major findings from the work performed to date by this team of investigators is briefly described in this paper. Copyright ASCE 2008.
