Volume Optimization of Solid Waste Landfill Using Voronoi Diagram Geometry

Edwin Koźniewski , Marcin Orłowski


AbstractThe loose material, falling freely on the flat area, creates a geometric object similar to the roof. This object, which is in fact an embankment, the authors described and examined in previous works. They stated that the top view of such an object is a flat diagram of Voronoi. In view of the need to enlarge the landfill by combining the existing disjoint embankments, the authors were encouraged to apply the results obtained in practice. They also provided a detailed methodology for creating such embankments. In particular, they used the standard version of AutoCAD software and built a 3D model of the landfill based on solid operations. This parametric approach to design enables the rapid determination of the volume and surface area and fits in the BIM technology of designing engineering objects.
