Document Type: Book - Proceedings

Abstract: The papers for this conference are grouped under the themes of four of the general sessions: 1) Geotechnical properties affecting disposal and utilization; 2) utilization in dams, embankments, and structural fills; 3) environmental problems: seepage, leachates, and gas; and 4) dewatering, stabilization, and reclamation. These topics deal with geotechnical aspects or problems common to disposal of all types of solid waste. The papers also can be grouped under geotechnical aspects of specific types of solid waste, e.g., fly ash and bottom ash, mine tailings, domestic refuse and sanitary landfills, industrial and chemical sludges, and dredged materials.

Subject Headings: Solid mechanics | Solid wastes | Dredged materials | Embankment dams | Waste disposal | Mine wastes | Chemical wastes
