Seismic Response and Stability Analysis of Landfills


Computer Program for Dynamic Analysis:


The following passage will review the computer programs encountered. With the aid of finite element analysis, computer programs have been developed to model seismic response of earth materials. 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 used in dynamic analysis are listed below in the diagram shown:
