Analysis of Foundations and Retaining walls on Industrial waste

Poddar, Vishal and Bebarta, Pratap Kumar (2011) Analysis of Foundations and Retaining walls on Industrial waste. BTech thesis.



The accumulation of industrial waste has poses a serious problem to the industrial growth and to human habitation. Disposal of industrial waste is covering vast track of valuable land. In this study an attempt has been made to evaluate the properties of industrial wastes like fly
ash, red mud, crusher dust, blast furnace slag to use as foundation bed and backfill in retaining structures. As most of the industrials wastes are dumped as heaps, studies have been carried out for the footings embedded in sloping ground. Various research have been done in the seismic bearing capacity of footings for horizontal ground, but the study for sloping ground is very limited. The effect of seismic forces on the above footings is also studied using finite element method. The inclined retaining walls with industrial wastes as backfill was analysed. As the variation in geotechnical properties of industrial wastes are obvious due to various reasons, lastly, reliability analysis of foundations on industrial waste using tradition limit equilibrium method is also studied, considering the variability of the parameters contributing to the performance of the system.
