  • Compacted lateritic soil treated with blast furnace slag as hydraulic barriers in waste containment systems

    Laboratory testing was conducted to assess the feasibility of using lateritic soil mixed with up to 15% blast furnace slag (BFS) by dry weight of soil as a suitable hydraulic barrier. Tests were carried out on the lateritic soil-slag mixture to ascertain the particle size distribution, index properties and compaction characteristics. The relationship between hydraulic conductivity, unconfined ...

  • Compatibility of compacted lateritic soil treated with bagasse ash and Municipal Solid Waste leachate

    Compatibility tests were carried out on lateritic soil treated with up to 12% bagasse ash compacted at about 2% wet of their respective optimum moistures using the standard Proctor energy. Samples were sequentially permeated with distilled water and municipal solid waste (MSW) leachate for 22 and 69 days, respectively, until steady flows were established. The final hydraulic conductivity values ...
