Theory of a one-dimensional multiphase mathematical model developed to simulate the settlement involving liquid and gas flows in a compressible landfill is presented. Landfill domain is assumed comprised of a deformable solid matrix, a liquid phase, and a gas phase with transient gas generation. After a two-phase model, i.e., liquid and gas phase, was developed, a solid phase was incorporated into the model. A gas generation term was employed as source and sink for solid and gas phases. After governing equations are developed, the Galerkin finite element technique is employed to discretize the partial differential equations.
