Abstract

The presence of some horizontal or subhorizontal zones of weakness (cracks or decompressed layers) led to high pressure development in the downstream part of the relatively wide till core of Manic 3 dam. A short description of the investigation works to determine the location of the weakness zones and an analysis of the causes which produced these zones are presented in this paper.

Peculiar Behaviour of the Manicouagan 3 Dam's Core

The presence of some horizontal or subhorizontal zones of weakness (cracks or decompressed layers) led to high pressure development in the downstream part of the relatively wide till core of Manic 3 dam. A short description of the investigation works to determine the location of the weakness zones and an analysis of the causes which produced these zones are presented in this paper.
