Abstract

In order to update existing regulations for the seismic design of tailings retention dikes, extensive investigations were undertaken for 15 existing tailings dams throughout Japan. Undisturbed samples procured from the tailings disposal ponds were tested ln the laboratory to determine the cyclic strength of the in-situ tailings deposits. The results of cyclic triaxial tests on these materials are summarized by means of empirical formulae which are recommended for incorporation in the new seismic design code for the tailings dams.

Cyclic Strength of Undisturbed Mine Tailings
