Embankment Wizard

Tailings storage facilities often use constructed embankments to contain tailings. Rift TD incorporates a powerful embankment wizard to assist you to:

  • Rapidly model an embankment
  • Calculate embankment cut and fill volumes

Rift TD generates the embankment as a separate model that you can later merge into base topography for deposition modelling.

To generate an embankment simply define the:

  • Base surface
  • The embankment crest. Either:
    • A string defining the upstream and downstream crest and a crest width; or
    • Two strings to define the upsream and downstream crests
  • The embankment upstream and downstream slopes

Following embankment generation you can easily export data:

  • Copy results to the clipboard
  • Copy graphics to the clipboard
