The Duncan-Chang Model Parameters for Municipal Solid Waste
By theoretical analysis and laboratory test, the model parameters of Duncan-Chang for municipal solid waste have been studied. To obtain the mechanical parameters, a new simple and practical method has been established. Research results show that the damage ratio is 0.6, parameter n is about 1.05, parameter F varies between 0 and 0.1, and parameter G varies between 0.3 and 0.4. Besides, the relationship between parameter k and the initial void ratio is linear, and the slope of the line is 5.0.
