Using risk to inform overtopping protection decisions
Contributor:Fiedler, W. R.
The decision to implement overtopping protection as a dam safety modification alternative can be difficult. The decision involves a conscious decision to allow a dam to overtop for floods above a threshold flood. If a large ...
Applications of numerical methods in design and evaluation of overtopping protection systems
Contributor:Salazar, F.; San Mauro, J.; Larese, A.; Irazábal, J.; Morán, R.; Oñate, E.; Toledo, M. Á.
The development of overtopping protection systems often requires detailed analyses of complex physical phenomena. This hinders the comprehensive knowledge of their behavior, and therefore the development of suitable design ...
Field trial for air entrained grout enriched roller compacted concrete
Contributor:Musselman, E. S.; Zimmer, G. J.; Young, J. R.
Roller compacted concrete (RCC) is frequently used to armor earthen embankments for passing extreme floods and to construct gravity dams and stepped spillways. Early experience on RCC dam applications in the 1980s showed ...
