ABSTRACT
Zoning by type and thickness of artificial soils was conducted in 2012. Following categories of artificial soils were identified : sandy and loamy fill-up soils, sandy hydraulically filled soils, soils from industrial dumps, modern dissimilar fill-up soils, which contain household and construction debris, cultural layer soils. Special attention in this article is given to geological and engineering assessment of heterogeneous fill-up soils and industrial wastes. Our investigations show that these soils are characterized by high chemical and microbiological aggressiveness to underground constructions, which undoubtedly require anti-corrosion actions.

Keywords: artificial soils, chemical aggressiveness of soils, microbiological aggressiveness of soils
