Abstract

The experiences on geological investigation, permeability test, prediction of seepage failure patterns and the earthquake damage of an earth dam foundation are presented in this paper. Basing on the monitoring data and seismic records observed from the seismic station on the dam, the prediction of reservoir induced earthquake and possibility of liquefaction are analysed.

Research on the Permeability and Earthquake Damage of an Earth Dam Foundation

St. Louis, Missouri

The experiences on geological investigation, permeability test, prediction of seepage failure patterns and the earthquake damage of an earth dam foundation are presented in this paper. Basing on the monitoring data and seismic records observed from the seismic station on the dam, the prediction of reservoir induced earthquake and possibility of liquefaction are analysed.
