  • AbstractAn extensive suite of geotechnical laboratory tests were undertaken on wastewater biosolids to evaluate their sustainable usage as a fill material in road embankments. Geotechnical tests undertaken include particle size distribution, specific gravity, Atterberg limits, compaction, consolidation, hydraulic conductivity, California bearing ratio (CBR), field vane shear, direct shear, and triaxial shear. The geotechnical tests indicated that biosolids are equivalent to organic fine-grained… CONTINUE READING
