Geotechnical Engineering for Mine Waste Storage Facilities by Geoffrey Blight

By Geoffrey Blight

The booklet is a entire therapy of the applying of geotechnical engineering to web site choice, web site exploration, layout, operation and closure of mine waste garage facilities.
It has been constructed from the professional mining advisor to the layout and operation of tailings and waste rock garage amenities in South Africa, and in addition from a sequence of put up graduate classes which were taught on the collage of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg for a few years. the extent and content material are appropriate as a technical resource and reference for training engineers engaged either within the layout and operational administration of mine waste garage amenities and for senior undergraduate and postgraduate scholars. The 13 chapters stick with the series of the existence cycle of a waste garage facility and likewise examine using mine waste as a development fabric. The textual content is liberally illustrated through either line drawings and images, and the theoretical passages are supported via commonplace try out effects, labored examples and thoroughly analysed case histories.
