In this paper the slope stability of Aydoghmoosh earth dam situated in the north west of Iran is evaluated by various methods of limit equilibrium, finite element and finite difference. Among numerous limit equilibrium methods, Simplified Bishop, Janbu and ...

<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 ...

The 182 m high concrete face rockfill dam (CFRD) is one of the main components of the Nam Ngum 2 (NN2) hydropower scheme in Lao PDR. Construction of the dam was essentially completed in March 2010 and reservoir impounding commenced subsequently. This paper ...

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 ...

<p>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 ...

The present study concerns analysis of the seismic response of earth dams. The behaviour of both the shell and core of the dam is described using the simple and popular non associated Mohr-Coulomb criterion. The use of this constitutive model is justified ...

<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>Embankment dams comprising broadly graded materials of glacial origin in the impervious core (base soil) and protective filter have in the past been identified as being prone to develop sinkholes more frequent than dams composed of materials of other origin. ...
