The results of laboratory and field settlement studies of household refuse are presented and analyzed. A possible technique for stabilizing refuse landfills with the use of conventional grouting methods and a fly ash grout is discussed. Comparative results of settlement studies of both stabilized and unstabilized refuse are given. Using approaches similar to those utilized for natural soils, a settlement prediction technique is developed for refuse landfills and used with refuse behavioral parameters to make settlement predictions for a field loading situation. The predictions are then compared to the measured results and found to be reasonably comparable if parameters from field data are used.
