STRUCTURES ON URBAN AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE PRODUCTS

CONSTRUCTIONS SUR RESIDUS URBAINS ET INDUSTRIELS

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO INVESTIGATE THE GEOTECHNICAL PROBLEMS ARISING DURING THE ERECTION OF STRUCTURES ON URBAN OR INDUSTRIAL WASTE, AND TO DEVELOP A METHODOLOGY FOR GEOTECHNICAL STUDIES (EVALUATION OF SUBSIDENCE, BEARING CAPACITY; EARTHMOVING OPERATIONS). AT THE PRESENT TIME AN INCREASING NUMBER OF CONSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES TAKE PLACE ON THIS KIND OF SITE ALTHOUGH THERE IS A NEARLY COMPLETE LACK OF REFERENCE TO AND EXPERIMENTS ON THESE TYPES OF MATERIAL. IT IS PROPOSED IN A FIRST PHASE: - TO CONDUCT A BIBLIOGRAPHIC STUDY AND A REVIEW OF STUDIES ALREADY CARRIED OUT OF THESE SITES, - TO FOLLOW UP THE BEHAVIOUR OF EMBANKMENTS BUILT ON URBAN AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE.
