GUIDELINES FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF EARTH-FILL DAMS

The design and construction of earth and rock-fill dams are complex because of the nature of the varying foundation conditi ons and range of properties of the materials available for use in the embankment. The first step is to conduct detailed geological and subsurface explorations, which characterize
