Formatted Abstract/Summary


A special problem arises when (i) the tailings deposited behind an embankment are impermeable relative to the embankment, and (ii) the depth of tailings becomes large. Under these conditions, the seepage discharge into the embankment from free water above the tailings depends on the conditions in the region of the interface between the free water and the embankment. A mathematical model for this region is given and a solution procedure based on the inverse problem and the use of the finite difference method is described. Numerical results for a range of embankment slopes between 25 degrees and 66 degrees are presented.
