Case Study: Unsaturated Triaxial Automated Testing

The quantity of land affected in the extraction of lignite in opencast mines is vast. Former mining activities leave behind numerous mine voids, which will mostly remain as artificial lakes. Overburden dumps are stretched over large areas. These areas present themselves as often uninhabitable and difficult areas for construction without further site investigation and understanding mostly remain as artificial lakes from rising groundwater and flooding.
