Seepage-induced consolidation test mine tailings
MetadataShow full item record
The objectives of this research were to design, construct, and evaluated the seepage induced consolidation testing (SICT) apparatus. Design of the SICT apparatus was based on existing apparatus at the University of Colorado-Boulder and University of British Columbia. Three materials were evaluated by the SICT and the odometer test to validate apparatus functionality: kaolin clay, fine synthetic tailings (FST), and average synthetic tailings (AST). This study consisted of the following tasks: (i) design and construction of the SICT apparatus; (ii) evaluation of geotechnical characteristics of ...
