SEISMIC STABILITY PROCEDURES FOR SOLID-WASTE LANDFILLS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Bray, Augello, Leonards, Repetto, and Byrne, published in this journal (Volume 121, Number 2, February 1995), is presented. Discusser Elton questions the authors' use of a one-dimensional SHAKE91 analysis, as opposed to a two-dimensional analysis, for estimating the earthquake motion in the soil profile. Elton believes this substitution to be unsafe in many situations. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
