Numerical models using equations for linearly elastic deformation were developed to predict the maximum expected amount of settlement and cover subsidence and potential cracking of the cover by differential settlement in uniformly, horizontally layered hazardous waste landfills. The hazardous waste landfill models represented landfills in which unsaturated wastes were contained in steel drums that were assumed to deteriorate ultimately. The model landfill consisted of alternating layers of drummed wastes and intermediate clay cover. The maximum expected subsidence was calculated to be about 12% of the total landfill thickness.
