The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is pleased to announce Erica Hann's MS Project presentation: "Secondary Compression Characteristics and Settlement Estimates of Fine Grained Tailings Deposits."
Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Location: Engineering Building 260
Adviser: Dr. Trevor Smith
The results of over 100 consolidation tests on tailings deposits collected from a 35-acre gravel processing facility were analyzed to determine secondary compression characteristics, anticipated settlements, and associated risks.
