We are pleased to announce the launch of our new online course, Covers for Mine Geowaste Facilities – 2: Design and Performance Analysis by Jack Caldwell. This course is the second in a series of two courses on covers for mine geowaste facilities. This course deals with cover design and performance analysis: the calculations and analyses that underlie comprehensive cover design which includes:
- engineering, scientific, and technical design methods to calculate and quantify just how the cover may perform in regards to stability, infiltration, erosion, and deformation; and
- the construction, surveillance, and monitoring that will need to be undertaken to put and keep the cover in operation.
The course includes numerous case studies and examples from the author’s extensive experience. For more information on the course and to register for certification, please visit the course page.
