Stress and Strain Analysis of Waste Dam and Stability Analysis of Landfill


Article Preview

Stress and strain of waste dam were analyzed based on the construction design and situations in the field. In situ stress field was calculated according to linear elastic material model and deformation was simulated according to hyperbolic nonlinear plastic model. On the basis of the deformation and stress analysis, dam stability was evaluated according to the deformation by total stress method. The result shows that the stability of the dam can meet the specification requirements and be operated normally even if the deformation occurs when solid waste are heaped up to 0-12 m according to the preliminary design scheme.
