critical state
<p>The behavior of sands subjected to diverse loading conditions has been the object of many studies in recent decades. Constitutive models that are able to simulate the behavior of sands have been developed based on critical state theory. Researchers have shown that the defining parameters of the critical state line (CSL) can be obtained by performing dra...

Large-scale mining operations generate vast quantities of tailings that are deposited in hydraulic-fill tailing dams in the form of slurries. Stability of these impoundments require investigation of water table configuration, aquifer boundaries, site characterization and determination of short and long term properties of tailings. These aspects are evaluated in ...
