Abstract

Oedometers and secondary oedometric tests with controlled shear rates were performed in two soils from the Baixada Fluminense region, in the city of São João do Meriti – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The soils in question are deposited on non-compacted soft soil with the addition of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Both samples of compacted soil were excavated at a depth of 10.0 m, and undisturbed samples were collected.

Keywords: Oedomerters, edometric, sand, clay, tension
