Computer-aided tools appropriate to architecture, engineering and construction have been Summarised, including digital terrain modelling (DTM), computer-aided design and draughting (CADD) and database management systems (DBMS). DTM and CADD techniques have been applied to simulating the hydraulic filling of tailings, or mine waste dams. A relational DBMS was used to structure and manage filling and terrain data relevant to hydraulic tailings disposal at the Wheal Jane mine in Cornwall. [Continues.]
