Study on Antiseismic Measures of Tailings Dam
Tailings dam due to earthquake action may lead to severe slippage damage, and setting antiseismic measure is an effective method to prevent damage. Dynamic nonlinear finite element method is used in the efforts to analyze the earthquake reaction and the deformation characteristic. To reduce dam seismic deformation, the reinforcement effect of geotextiles, rock pressure and stone column is studied. Finally, a synthetically antiseismic measure that is composed of geotextiles-reinforced in sub-dam, rock pressure out of starter dam and densification foundation is proposed. It is found that the synthetically antiseismic measure produces better antiseismic effect, and offers a consult for the antiseismic design of tailings dam.
