Abstract

The performance in terms of pore pressure and deformation of five earth and earth-rock-fill dams is briefly presented. These darns are located in different geologic formations. Their pore pressure response has been low due to relatively longer construction periods. The deformation behaviour has been similar to the dams constructed earlier. The valley ratio seems to influence the strain condition along the height and longitudinal axis of the embankment darn.

Performances of Some Embankment Dams in India

The performance in terms of pore pressure and deformation of five earth and earth-rock-fill dams is briefly presented. These darns are located in different geologic formations. Their pore pressure response has been low due to relatively longer construction periods. The deformation behaviour has been similar to the dams constructed earlier. The valley ratio seems to influence the strain condition along the height and longitudinal axis of the embankment darn.
