<p>The dynamic properties of plastic concrete used as an alternative core in embankment dams were studied. To investigate the specimen&rsquo;s dynamic properties, an extensive series of monotonic and cyclic triaxial tests were done. Bentonite contents 5.5%, ...

<p>The original design of a dam may be reevaluated for a number of reasons, including the occurence of an incident or unusual load, the availability of new information, the refinement of certain design requirements or guidelines, the adoption of risk-based ...
Reference: FEMA P-1015/May 2014
<p>Scour of rock is a complex process and can be very problematic for dams when excessive scour threatens dam stability. Removal of individual rock blocks is one of the principal mechanisms by which scour can occur, particularly in unlined spillways and on ...
Reference: Report No. UCB GT 12‐02
<p>Designers of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) dams are invariably concerned with control of thermal-induced tensile stresses and thus the possibility of uncontrolled cracking which can lead to leakage related problems in the dam. Complex computer generated ...

This report compares two different dam types (Roller Compacted Concrete Dam and Concrete Face Rock-fill Dam) in order to help the decision making when choosing what dam type to build in Panama, where Vattenfall is involved in a joint venture to build a dam ...

The basis of the design of earth and rockfill dams is focused on ensuring the stability of the structure under a set of conditions expected to occur during its life. Combined mechanical and hydraulic conditions must be considered since pore pressures develop ...

These guidelines describe the design and construction requirements for the construction of a proposed dam or the reconstruction, modification, enlargement, rehabilitation, alteration, or repair of an existing dam in Texas. These design and construction requirements ...

<p>The design of small dams constructed of roller compacted concrete (RCC) can be more challenging than the design of a much larger RCC dam. This is especially true when the design engineer has a restricted budget for design and construction of the dam.</p ...

<p>A numerical procedure for the preliminary estimation of the earthquake-induced settlement of concrete face rockfill dams is presented. The method is based on a simple constitutive model that accounts for the key features of the behavior of coarse grained ...

<p>A review of the design and construction of five recently completed roller-compacted-concrete dams in the U.S. reveals that many new design details and construction methods have been adapted to enhance the final product.</p>
