Geotechnics of Waste Fills-- Theory and Practice



The purpose of this symposium was to explore the geotechnical properties and behavior of waste fill materials and to compile them into one volume that could serve as a reference text on a subject that is not widely addressed in accessible literature.

The symposium was sponsored by ASTM Committee DI8, Subcommittee D18.14, Geotechnics of Waste Management. STP 1070 will serve as a guide to Committee DI8 members in their future efforts to address the problems of landfill geotechnics, such as stability of slopes, settlement of fills and groundwater (leachate) flow.
The term "waste fill" covers a wide range of materials, from mineral fills contaminated with relatively small amounts of organic or vegetal debris through woodwastes and various types of tailings and slimes, to domestic and industrial refuse.
Two categories of fill have purposely been excluded from this symposium: tailings and hazardous wastes. Also, we excluded liners, artificial or natural, from the list of topics. All these three topics have been widely covered in previous conferences, symposia and numerous papers.

Our involvement in the geotechnics of waste management has shown that more geotechnical attention should be paid to such aspects as placing methods, field and laboratory sampling and testing, classification and in-situ improvement methods. These are the topics that we sought to explore at this symposium, and the 23 papers presented here provide a valuable data base for the solution of problems pertaining to those topics.
