Performance of Solid Waste Landfills in Earthquakes Neven Matasovic, , Edward Kavazanjian, Jr., , and Robert L. Anderson Earthquake Spectra 2, Cited by: Interpretation and analysis of observational data on the performance of solid waste landfills during earthquakes is the most reliable source of information on the seismic response of solid waste. This paper critically reviews seismic design practices in light of theobserved performance of landfills during recent earthquakes. Developments in these areas are summarized as follows: earthquake ground motions, dynamic waste fill properties, dynamic responses of geomembranes and their interfaces, nonlinear dynamic response analysis, and seismic stability evaluation. The response of municipal solid-waste landfills at high levels of earthquake shaking is explored. Results from fully nonlinear dynamic analyses indicate that the seismic response of a landfill, particularly the seismic loading for the cover, can vary significantly due to reasonable variations of waste properties, fill heights, site conditions, and design rock motions.

Environmental Guidelines: Solid Waste Landfills, Second edition 1 Part A: General information Structure and purpose of these guidelines A landfill is an engineered, in-ground facility for the safe and secure disposal of society’s. Evaluation of Solid Waste Landfill Performance during the Northridge Earthquake, Earthquake Design and Performance of Solid Waste Landfills, pp. 17–50 (ASCE Geotechnical Special Publication No. .   Estimation of seismic yield acceleration for the municipal solid waste landfills is the basic step for design to mitigate the hazard of earthquake on landfills. For most of the landfills constructed in the seismic zones, influence of the vertical component of seismic acceleration is often neglected assuming that it is not in phase with the horizontal seismic acceleration and hence does not. This paper critically reviews seismic design practices in light of the observed performance of landfills during recent earthquakes. Developments in these areas are summarized as follows: earthquake ground motions, dynamic waste fill properties, dynamic responses of geomembranes and their interfaces, nonlinear dynamic response analysis, and seismic stability evaluation.
