Abstract

Heavily instrumented dams are unusual in the Midwestern United States. Council Bluff Dam, Missouri, USA has an embankment that provides monitoring by piezometers, inclinometer, settlement plates, earth pressure cells, extensometers, tiltmeters, and datum plates. The collection, evaluation, and discussion of the data and instruments give insight into embankment performance. Emphasis has been placed on monitoring after construction.
