Summary

The project will use a geotechnical centrifuge to produce seepage data for simulated tailings facilities.  Using a number of modified centrifuges strongboxes a number of testing regimes were undertaken.

Model embankments were constructed of a blend of sand, clay and silt on both permeable and impermeable bases.  Permeability dependent on applied stress was displayed.
