Static Liquefaction Workshop (Calgary)
This workshop aims to provide discussion and video demonstration of the Static Liquefaction Failure Mechanisms (and triggering process) as it relates to tailings, and the tools used to assess the potential for this behaviour.
This will be achieved through explanation on the use and interpretation of the cone penetration test (CPT); the key tool to assess the strength and liquefaction susceptibility of tailings. In addition, we will host video demonstrations of a static liquefaction laboratory test during the workshop. Theoretical discussions will be alternated with examples from various tailings failure case histories to highlight the relevance of the concepts and the meaning of the results.
