EGLL 2023 - Static and Cyclic Liquefaction of Mine Tailings

  • 10 PDHs
  • Online

This course discusses fundamental and applied concepts of static and cyclic liquefaction on mine tailings in the context of the design, construction, and operation of tailings storage facilities. Participants are provided with an understanding of the concepts and tools used by engineers to for assessing the static and cyclic liquefaction of mine tailings. Topics covered in the course include: Field and laboratory testing, critical state soil mechanics concepts, mechanical characterization of mine tailings, cone penetration testing (CPT) and state characterization, residual strength estimation, numerical techniques, simplified and advance methods for assessing seismic performance, design recommendations, case histories.

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