Risk evaluation of tailings dam-break based on the extension matter-element model
School of Civil and Resource Engineering University of Science and Technology Beijing 100083 Beijing, China
As one of the most concerned risk sources of mining enterprises, the safety and stability of the tailings storage facility (TSF) is closely connected to the operating activity, surrounding ecological environment, and residents' lives safety and properties safety. In order to evaluate the risk of the tailings dam break, the extension matter-element model has been applied in the work. First, the risk evaluation indicator system was established, included 3 levels, 4 criteria and 17 individual indicators. Next, the weight of each indicator was computed by using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) method. Then, the classical field, controlled field and closeness function within the extension matter-element model were determined considering the TSF height and volume, and the principle of the maximum membership degree has been improved by the closeness. Finally, a case study was illustrated to demonstrate the effectiveness of the model. The result indicated that the target TSF operated at a relatively lower risk level, which accurately reflected the real operating situation. This work can provide a reasonable reference for dam break risk evaluation.
