Heap Leach Air Injection

In This Issue

Air injection is a commonly used practice for heap leaching scenarios where the reactions are oxygen-consumptive. The following example uses SVAirFlow™ coupled with SVFlux™ to simulate heap leaching with air injection.

The purpose of this example is to illustrate the distribution of pore air pressure, air density, and heap saturation in the case of air injection in a heap leaching scenario.

Moving Wedges in SVSlope® 3D

One of the important SVSlope® 3D beta tester requests was the implementation of moving wedges in an analysis. In previous versions of SVSlope, a single wedge could be entered and analyzed. A wedge in SVSlope 3D is similar to a block failure in SVSlope 2D, so it is now possible to enter a series of parameterized wedges.

Entry and Exit Search Method

Based on feedback from our beta testers, SoilVision Systems Ltd. has implemented an additional method of specifying a group of slip surfaces for a SVSlope® 3D analysis, an extension of an existing 2D method. This new method allows the user to define a plane which defines the center of the proposed slip surface. Next, the user can specify entry and exit points graphically on the screen. The end result is a methodology whereby entry and exit points for an elliptical slip surface can easily be specified in a 3D analysis.
