Waste soil consists of waste material such as concrete debris, decayed wood, plastics and others. The heterogeneous content of waste soil makes the geotechnical properties difficult to categorize and analyzed. Laboratory works such as compaction test, consolidation test, triaxial and direct shear test are conducted on waste soil to know its geotechnical properties. Based on standard proctor test, the waste soil has a maximum dry density of 1567 kg/m3 with optimum moisture content of 29… CONTINUE READING
