Numerical evaluation of one-dimensional large-strain consolidation of mine tailings
The objective of this study was to evaluate the applicability of commercially-available, one-dimensional (1-D) large-strain consolidation programs (FSConsol and CONDES0) for predicting mine tailings consolidation to estimate storage capacity of tailings storage facilities (TSFs). This study consisted of the following tasks: (i) consolidation modeling of well-known benchmark examples from literature, (ii) parametric study to assess the influence of input parameters (i.e., constitutive relationships, initial void ratio, impoundment geometry, and tailings production rate) on consolidation behavior ...
