Best practices in tailings dam failure assessment
Understanding risks and consequences of tailings dam failure, unique challenges in modelling material behaviour, and advances in modelling and assessment practices
Billions of tons of mine tailings are added to tailings storage facilities every year. Tailings dams are at constant risk of failure, and our ability to simulate those failures is crucial in arming planners and emergency responders with data needed to save lives.
In this webinar, our expert presenters will demonstrate best practices for reflecting the hydraulic characteristics of non-Newtonian flow in 1D, 2D, and 3D models.
We will address how recent advances in hardware and software allow more accurate prediction of failure mechanisms and inundation zones.
We will also present a case study of the tragic Brumadinho Dam failure, comparing the results of five different modelling software applications that have been calibrated against observations of the event.
