Soil-cement for high-velocity spillway flow applications
MetadataShow full item record
Although soil-cement has been used on many dams for slope erosion protection for over 50 years, soil-cement has had limited use as an overtopping liner protection for spillways. The application of soil-cement for a spillway liner was researched and modeled to establish performance criteria to support design of an auxiliary spillway for a new large, high hazard dam in Colorado. Case studies were researched and hydraulic performance tests were conducted at the Hydraulics Laboratory at the Engineering Research Center of Colorado State University (CSU) to establish design criteria for soil-cement ...
