[AGE05-P14] Compaction and consolidation characteristics for representative industrial wastes in Japan
Keywords:Compaction, Consolidation, Sludge, Crushed concrete, Incineration ash, Mixed waste materials
For the compaction characteristics of two mixed and three mixed samples, relationship between maximum dry density and mixing proportion of crushed concrete and/or incineration ash showed strong positive linear relation. Crushed concrete and incineration ash have completely different particle size distribution, however, the mixed samples of sludge and crushed concrete and/or incineration ash showed almost same compaction characteristics. Coefficient of compression for the mixed sample of sludge and incineration ash gradually decreased with increasing the mixing proportion of incineration ash, while for the mixed sample of sludge and crushed concrete, they drastically decreased with increasing the mixing proportion of crushed concrete. For the three mixed samples, they drastically decreased with increasing the mixing proportion of crushed concrete and/or incineration ash. Also, coefficient of volume compressibility and coefficient of consolidation for the samples containing crushed concrete clearly decreased and increased, respectively, as compared to the sludge. Therefore, the mixed sampled containing crushed concrete showed different consolidation characteristics.
