We recently completed a set of mini penetrometer testing on reconstituted iron ore tailings obtained from BHP’s Mount Whaleback mine.  The centrifuge testing included CPTu, T-bar, and ball penetrometers.  The focus was on rate effects and brittleness, to enable linking...

One of the focuses of TAILLIQ is using the Discrete Element Method (DEM) to simulate cone penetration tests in a saturated undrained granular medium.

In this model, the fluid behaviour is simulated using the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). The coupled LBM-DEM model is...

As part of TAILLIQ, we are using tube samples obtained adjacent to CPT probes to supplement and compare to our calibration chamber test results.  Tube samples taken in saturated low plasticity tailings can, in some cases, provide a useful estimate of in situ void ratio...
