    Explores the geotechnical properties and behavior of waste fill materials. 23 peer-reviewed papers provide solutions to problems pertaining to placing methods, field and laboratory sampling and testing, classification, and in-situ improvement methods.

    Papers in 4 sections:

    • Landfill Investigations, Design, Construction

    • Stabilization, Compaction, Consolidation

    • Stability and Settlement Analyses

    • and Case Histories.

    Useful handbook for design and construction on and in the large number of closed landfills in North America and elsewhere.
