Advances in the understanding of the hydraulic behavior of wedge-shape block spillways
Contributor:Caballero, F. J.; Toledo, M. Á.; Morán, R.; San Mauro, J.; Salazar, F.
The technology of wedge shaped blocks (WSB) for spillways has had a rising development through the last forty years, and has proved its reliability for practical applications with spillways executed during the last decade. ...
Overflow for the complete failure of the downstream shell of a rockfill dam
Contributor:Alves, R. M.; Toledo, M. Á.; Morán, R.
This paper presents the results of experimental research using physical models regarding the failure of the downstream shoulder of rockfill dams caused by overtopping. The aim of this investigation is to analyze how different ...
A model for the analysis of the structural failure of the clay core in rockfill dams due to overtopping
Contributor:Ricoy, L. F.; Toledo, M. Á.; Morán, R.
In 2014 the Dam Safety Research Group (SERPA) of the Technical University of Madrid performed several tests to assess the behavior of rockfill dams in overtopping scenarios. A structural failure pattern of the clay core ...
