  1. 1. Tailings Dam Performance Modeling and Safety Analysis of a Tailings dam

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Roger Knutsson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : Storage and management of mine waste are both needed in the mining industry. After mineral extraction of the ore, there are generally leftovers with insufficient economical value that need to be taken care of. The finest grained fractions are referred to as tailings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dam safety in a hydrological perspective-Case study of the historical water system of Sala Silver Mine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark och vatten

    Author : Tina Fridolf; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : dam safety; design flood; flood mitigation; hydrological; risk assessment;

    Abstract : The old water system in Sala, formerly belonging to thesilver mine, is analysed with regard to dam safety focusing onthe hydrological aspects. The hydrological safety of the riskclass I dams in the area, built in the 16th century, is notconsidered adequate according to the Swedish guidelines fordesign flood determination. READ MORE

  4. 4. Toward a reliability framework for the observational method

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Johan Spross; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rock engineering; observational method; Eurocode 7; structural safety; reliability analysis; dam safety; Bergmekanik; observationsmetoden; Eurokod 7; sannolikhetsbaserad dimensionering; dammsäkerhet; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Constructing sustainable structures in rock that satisfy all predefined technical specifications requires rational and effective construction methods. When the geotechnical behaviour is hard to predict, the Euro­pean design code, Eurocode 7, suggests application of the observational method to verify that the performance is acceptable. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reliability-based Assessment of Concrete Dam Stability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Marie Westberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; assessment; stability; concrete dam; structural reliability analysis; probability; uplift; system reliability;

    Abstract : Risk management is increasingly used in dam safety and includes risk analysis, risk evaluation and risk reduction. Structural Reliability Analysis (SRA) is a probabilistic methodology that may be used in the risk assessment process. READ MORE
