Abstract

Northeastern U.S. seismicity is briefly discussed and design earthquake is established for landfill projects in accordance with current federal regulations. Methods previously developed for embankment dams are reviewed relative to the seismic stability evaluation of solid waste landfills. Charts were developed to expedite bottom liner and cover system selection while meeting particular seismic design requirements.

Seismic Design of Landfills for NE United States

St. Louis, Missouri

Northeastern U.S. seismicity is briefly discussed and design earthquake is established for landfill projects in accordance with current federal regulations. Methods previously developed for embankment dams are reviewed relative to the seismic stability evaluation of solid waste landfills. Charts were developed to expedite bottom liner and cover system selection while meeting particular seismic design requirements.
