    Abstract

    This paper presents the development of a model waste that has physical properties similar to those reported by investigators for municipal solid waste (MSW). The model waste was developed using a mixture of peat, E-grade kaolin clay and fraction-E fine sand. Unit weight, compressibility, and shear strength characteristics of the model waste were experimentally determined and shown to match well with those reported for MSW.
