Abstract

An essential problem in constructing dams which are continually built and their height exceeds 30 m, is current checking of strength parameters of the dam and subsoil. The paper presents several modem procedures for evaluating strength parameters of a dam and subsoil on the example of constructing post-flotation wastes from copper ore mine in Rudna, Poland. Results and interpretation of tests with dilatocone, conductivity cone are given .as well as those for routine CPT, CPTU penetration techniques. The paper also contains some information on the unique dump - Żelazny Most Reservoir.

Procedure for In-situ Evaluation of Geotechnical Parameters of High Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

An essential problem in constructing dams which are continually built and their height exceeds 30 m, is current checking of strength parameters of the dam and subsoil. The paper presents several modem procedures for evaluating strength parameters of a dam and subsoil on the example of constructing post-flotation wastes from copper ore mine in Rudna, Poland. Results and interpretation of tests with dilatocone, conductivity cone are given .as well as those for routine CPT, CPTU penetration techniques. The paper also contains some information on the unique dump - Żelazny Most Reservoir.
