Influence of Berm Number on Safety Factor of Tailings Dam
Tailings dam safety has always been an important research field of geotechnical engineering world, and research on safety factor of dam is an important indicator of stability of tailings dams. In this paper assumed that Sweden arc method and simplified Bishop method were used to analyze influence of berm number on safety factor of tailings dam in some condition. Results showed that change of berm number had an impact on total safety factor of dam; Impact of change of berm number on safety factors was also different at different intervals. The influence analysis of changes of berm number on safety factor of dam had directive significance for design and construction on site.
