In order to provide some guidance for engineers concerned with the planning and operation of consolidated landfills, the consolidation and compressibility characteristics of various hydraulically placed dredgings are evaluated by conducting an extensive series of laboratory consolidation tests on ″undisturbed″ samples taken by piston sampler from three different landfill sites. Classical consolidation theory was used to analyze the results, and linear regression analyses were employed to establish useful, simple, and convenient relationships between the consolidation and compressibility characteristics, and the index properties of the dredgings.
