Seismic Response and Stability Analysis of Landfills


Computer Program Application:


The following passage will review the computer programs encountered in my literature review. With the aid of finite element analysis, computer programs have been developed to model seismic criteria very accurately. For the OII site, QUAD4M was used to conduct a two-dimensional equivalent-linear finite element seismic response analysis for the final cover system. Example programs associated with specific situations are listed below in the diagram shown:
