Numerical analysis of densification in tailings deposition in mining pits

Filling mining pits with tailings has become an increasingly frequent practice.

To study the filling capacity and deposition time, it is necessary to understand the density that occurs in the tailings and the volume of water produced.

The variation of the void index, the pore pressures, and the surface deformation are relevant aspects that must be considered.

PLAXIS LE Consolidation software is ideal for this type of analysis using the concept of pseudo-three-dimensional analysis to simulate the 3D density of tailings.

Watch this webinar and understand the procedure for densification analysis and modeling when considering small and large deformations using PLAXIS LE software. See how this Bentley product makes your workflow easy and intuitive.
