Lessons learnt in geotechnical investigation and stability analysis for upstr...

Benoit Wentzinger

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…

Assessing the volume change behaviour of red mud through laboratory and field...

Ali Shokouhi

Storage of the Red mud as a fine-grained waste generated during production of alumina from bauxite has detrimental impacts on the environment. Thus investigating the potential reuse of the red…

The development of soil water characteristic curves for soils types classifie...

Ken Mercer

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…

Liquefaction behaviour of tailings under cyclical simple shear testing

Allen Li

The behaviour of the tailings under cyclic loadings will have an impact on the stability and deformations of tailings dams and a good understanding of the cyclic behaviour of the…

Characterisation of pore pressure in a tailings dam and the implications for ...

David Johns

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…

Segregating tailings: effects on density and water retention

Keith Seddon

Segregation of tailings on deposition can occur as a result of a) sub-aqueous deposition, and b) sub-aerial deposition at lower solids concentrations (i.e. when the solids concentration is less than…

Potential improvement of tailings geotechnical behaviour using bacteria

Hernan Cifuentes

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…
