Lessons learnt in geotechnical investigation and stability analysis for upstr...
Upstream embankment raises often represent the lowest cost option for increasing the capacity of tailings storage facilities (TSF), but also pose the highest stability risk due to constructing on top…
The development of soil water characteristic curves for soils types classifie...
The soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC) is one of the most essential soil properties in unsaturated soil mechanics. The water flow and storage characteristics of an unsaturated soil are closely related…
Characterisation of pore pressure in a tailings dam and the implications for ...
This paper discusses pore pressures in the embankments of tailings dams by comparing real world data with common design assumptions. Assessment of pore pressures has implications on material behaviour interpretation…
Potential improvement of tailings geotechnical behaviour using bacteria
Despite the recognised importance of tailings management, there remain little data on the potential benefits of biological treatments compared with physical and chemical treatments. The operation of the majority of…
