Abstract

In the close vicinity of the great shock, March 4, 1977, in Vrancea region, Romania, one of the biggest shocks felt recently in Europe, two rockfill dams 120 m and, respectively, 70 m high with clayey cores are being constructed. In the paper, some problems arised by the design of these dams from earthquake engineering point of view are presented.

Rockfill Dam Stability Problems in a Seismic Zone

St. Louis, Missouri

In the close vicinity of the great shock, March 4, 1977, in Vrancea region, Romania, one of the biggest shocks felt recently in Europe, two rockfill dams 120 m and, respectively, 70 m high with clayey cores are being constructed. In the paper, some problems arised by the design of these dams from earthquake engineering point of view are presented.
