Ground liquefaction hazard potential evaluation method developed
Research project „Integrated mining waste security and evaluation system” successfully completed
The research project was funded by the Mitteldeutsche Bergbau-Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH (LMBV mbH).
In the past, LMBV managed mining waste sites have frequently been affected by ground liquefaction processes caused by rising ground water after mine closure. Due to ground water induced modifications of the physical and chemical properties, these mining waste piles are facing sudden impacts on their geotechnical stability. The results are deformation processes of the earth surface causing hazards for follow-up use of mining areas.
We are thanking LMBV mbH and the University of Freiberg for the excellent co-operation.
