Abstract

The first part of this paper briefly presents the concept of design and construction of the Iron Gates II dams. The paper will concentrate on the works performed by the author for geotechnical investigations concerning the foundation and embankment materials. Based on the in situ investigations and large scale laboratory test data the numerical analysis for earth darn was carried out. In the second part, the observation and instrumented behaviour of foundations material were related to particular aspects: river left bank instability and earth dam connection; foundation rebound during excavation for concrete structures; settlements, pore pressures and total pressures monitoring during construction, impounding, reservoir filling and for the first three operation years.

Iron Gates II: Design and Performance of Dams – Geotechnical Considerations

The first part of this paper briefly presents the concept of design and construction of the Iron Gates II dams. The paper will concentrate on the works performed by the author for geotechnical investigations concerning the foundation and embankment materials. Based on the in situ investigations and large scale laboratory test data the numerical analysis for earth darn was carried out. In the second part, the observation and instrumented behaviour of foundations material were related to particular aspects: river left bank instability and earth dam connection; foundation rebound during excavation for concrete structures; settlements, pore pressures and total pressures monitoring during construction, impounding, reservoir filling and for the first three operation years.
