Beach slope prediction of thickened tailings using the CFD method

By david satterthwaite • February 18th, 2015

Thickened tailings disposal is gaining in popularity because of its inherent advantages over conventional tailings disposal. One method of investigating the beach profile is to use a laboratory flume test. Although this method has been utilised for conventional tailings successfully for many years, it tends to yield much steeper beach slopes than what is measuredmore…
