Abstract

A landfill is a site for disposal of waste materials by burial and is the oldest form of waste treatment. Dumping of municipal solid waste can effect and change the geotechnical properties of soil. Limited availability of land for dumping encourages the uncontrolled dumping of waste, on the outskirts of city that take a large space of land. . Some chemical content on dump site soil may affect the future structure to develop such as concrete on foundation and steel pile. Different locations of dump site have different soil characteristics and chemical content. The aim of this study generally to determine the geotechnical properties, chemical content, strength parameter and settlement magnitude of the soil. The structure may damage from long term effect such as corrosion, eroded and also reduce in workability. There are possibilities present of Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Copper (Cu), Cadmium (Cd), Chlorine (Cl), Chromium (Cr), Lead (Pb), and Nitrogen (N) in the soil. From the study, it’s shown that specific gravity of soil is much lower from normal soil since it does contain organic matter. Besides that, the soil also has high plasticity due to polluted by variety of dump and leachate that may affect its characteristic. The chemical content that present in the soil are more than 20 but only 8 elements and oxides have more than 1% present percentage in the soil. Undrained triaxial test with increase confining pressure σ3 = 60 kPa, σ3 = 120 kPa and σ3 = 240 kPa reported that highest cohesion and angle of friction are 16 kN/m2 and 43.2° respectively for waste soil in Bukit Ampang Landfill. The compressibility coefficients = 0.393 cm2/MN, compression index = 0.333, and consolidation settlement at 240 minutes show that the soil are settled between 1.0 mm to 1.11 mm.
