|Need help with *envolvente* only. Thanks very much, I'm really stuck!|
...realizar una caracterización del tipo de materiales que componen los botaderos, a fin de obtener una *ENVOLVENTE* de falla caracteristica y analizar con esta información la estabilidad de los botaderos.
Found several hits dealing with casing of oil and water wells, and this site below that deals with creating a casing for an industrial waste well. I am almost certain this concept/terminology is used in mining. Casing protects the surrounding water table from contamination.
Hope this helps/applies to your situation.

Thanks to all for the time taken to help me out.
