EGLL 2022 - Geotechnical Analysis of Tailings and Waste Storage Facilities

  • 10 PDHs
  • Online

This course discusses the geotechnical analyses required for the design, construction, and operation of waste storage facilities, with an emphasis on tailings storage facilities. Participants are provided with an understanding of the tools used by engineers to evaluate waste and tailings storage facilities. Topics covered in the course include: geotechnical modeling concepts, seepage analysis, limit equilibrium stability analysis, stress-deformation (finite-difference and finite-element) analysis, liquefaction analysis, dam break analysis, risk analysis, design considerations, and illustrative examples.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
