Abstract

Land cost in urban area is increasing day by day as a result of urbanisation, industrialisation and population explosion in developing countries like India so it became a challenging effort to put out a strong engineering solution for the sustainable structural stability at the costly places in the urban areas of covered land filling. Considering the vision of a sustainable development, the challenge of the geotechnical community is to supply more environmental friendly construction techniques, reduce the use of natural resources and promote the use of less harmful products. Solid waste disposal in landfills is the most economical form of disposal of waste particularly in the developing country as compared to incineration. Landfill Engineering Design Problems involve various aspects like determination of geotechnical properties of waste, land fill settlement, slope stability, field performance of landfill cover and liner systems, seismic behavior of the disposal site during earth quake etc. As the land cost is increasing tremendously and decreasing availability of good construction site is building up pressure on the engineers to utilize even old landfill sites which covers a large area. If it is to planned to develop such landfill site for the purpose of infrastructure it is necessary to determine geotechnical properties of such landfill site. In this study, geotechnical properties of an open waste dump site at Surat city is evaluated to check the feasibility of development of housing for economically weaker section, which otherwise constructed on very costly urban area.
