<p>Desiccation (water loss by drying or freeze-thaw sufficient to generate matric suction), can influence the performance of a tailings deposit both positively and negatively. The significance of desiccation is largest in tailings that have been dewatered prior to deposition, by thickening or filtration. Such tailings can be “stacked” o...

<p>The purpose of this paper is to investigate the horizontal stress evolution and soil collapse during the cement dissolution process using a combination of experimental and numerical methods. The experimental procedure was carried out using a modified oedometer cell with horizontal stress measurements and synthetic samples in order to simulate simultaneo...
