Abstract

The design of embankment is carried out based on several assumptions for the dam body and foundation, and the dam is constructed according to the design conditions. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the conforming of assumptions to the design and construction by the observation of behavior of the dam body and foundation. In this report, internal vertical movement, pore-water pressure and surface movement are arranged concerning of 21 embankment dams of Japan in order to optimize the measurement method including frequency and proper installation of instrumentation and consequently to present a guidelines for the safety control of dams.

Analyses of Behaviors of Embankment Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

The design of embankment is carried out based on several assumptions for the dam body and foundation, and the dam is constructed according to the design conditions. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the conforming of assumptions to the design and construction by the observation of behavior of the dam body and foundation. In this report, internal vertical movement, pore-water pressure and surface movement are arranged concerning of 21 embankment dams of Japan in order to optimize the measurement method including frequency and proper installation of instrumentation and consequently to present a guidelines for the safety control of dams.
