SPH Modeling for Flow Slides in Landfills
Flow slides at municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills can lead to a leak of toxic MSW and leachate over a large area, and thus serious pollution of the environment in the surrounding region. SPH method is introduced in this chapter to predict the propagation of failed MSW in the environment. The flow slides that occurred in landfills located in Sarajevo, Bandung and Payatas were simulated. The results match the field data well and highlight the capability of the proposed SPH modeling method to simulate such complex phenomena as flow slides in MSW landfills.
