Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities

Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities
Add to cart
US$ 220.00
The book is a comprehensive treatment of the application of geotechnical engineering to site selection, site exploration, design, operation and closure of mine waste storage facilities.
It has been developed from the official mining industry guide to the design and operation of tailings and waste rock storage facilities in South Africa, and also from a series of post graduate courses that have been taught at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg for many years. The level and content are suitable as a technical source and reference for practising engineers engaged both in the design and operational management of mine waste storage facilities and for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students. The thirteen chapters follow the sequence of the life cycle of a waste storage facility and also consider the use of mine waste as a construction material. The text is liberally illustrated by both line drawings and photographs, and the theoretical passages are supported by typical test results, worked examples and carefully analysed case histories.
