This two-day workshop aims to provide demonstrations of the static liquefaction failure mechanism (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 assessing the strength and liquefaction susceptibility, and carrying out a static liquefaction laboratory test as a live demonstration 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. Mining and tailings consultants, operators of tailings storage facilities, and regulators will find this workshop of interest.

Workshop contents include: Fundamentals and theory of cone penetration testing (CPT) Interpretation of the CPT results Static liquefaction, fundamentals and examples Demonstration of the static liquefaction mechanism Procedures and considerations for tailings laboratory testing Explanation and discussion of a number of static liquefaction case histories
