Abstract
The piezocone penetrometer is an in situ testing tool that is particularly useful for the investigation of tailings impoundments. This equipment is ideally suited for testing of tailings since a lightweight pushing frame can be used for advancing the probe. A field testing program was completed ata uranium tailings impoundment in Uravan, Colorado. This paper describes how the results of piezocone tests are interpreted and demonstrates these methods using the data obtained.
