Dynamic Response Analysis of Tailings Dam under Seismic Action


Article Preview

A finite element model of tailiings dam was used to analyze the dynamic responses of the stress field, displacement and acceleration of the dam with the dynamic time-history response analysis method in this paper. The time-history curves of different responses were obtained. And an evaluation for dynamic stability of the tailings dam was also discussed. The analysis result shows that this case can provide a certain reference value for the dynamic calculation and the dynamic stability analysis of tailings dam under seismic load.
