Open dumping area has a potential hazard such as the settlement of the dumping sites, the release of hazardous gas and pollution of the groundwater to the environment. The risk assessment are conducted on the open dumping area in order to evaluate the potential risk that occur at the open dumping area. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the bearing capacity of the waste soil at the open dumping area. The risk assessment on the bearing capacity at the open dumping area are simulate using the Monte Carlo Simulations. The methodology starts from collecting the soil samples, conducting experiments such as sieve analysis test, specific gravity test and direct shear box test, and finally the analysis using Monte Carlo Simulation. Monte Carlo Simulation was used to decide or to make conclusion on the best probabilities for the bearing capacity at the open dumping area.
