  1. 1. Resistivity investigation and monitoring for detection of internal erosion and anomalous seepage in embankment dams

    Författare :Pontus Sjödahl; Teknisk geologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; internal erosion; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; time-lapse inversion; inversion; monitoring; modelling; resistivity; detection; leakage; seepage; teknisk geografi; embankment dam;

    Sammanfattning : Methods for monitoring seepage and detecting internal erosion are essential for the safety evaluation of embankment dams. Internal erosion is one of the major reasons for embankment dam failures, and there are several tenths of thousands of large embankment dams in the world. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Investigation of Suffusion in Glacial Till Dam Cores : Testing methods and critical hydraulic gradients

    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; internal erosion; suffusion; glacial till; dam cores; dams; experimental investigation; hydraulic gradient; testing methods; cohesionless soils; granular soils; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : There are 10 000 dams in Sweden of varying size, age and type, being water retention and tailing dams the two major type of dams. About 2000 of the water retention dams belong to hydropower operations, out of which 190 are classified internationally as large dams (higher than 15m). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Seepage monitoring in embankment dams

    Författare :Sam Johansson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Internal erosion, which is one of the major reasons forembankment dam failure, causes an increased seepage flow due toloss of fines. A seepage measuring system is therefore a vitalpart of an embankment dam’s monitoring system. Manyexisting seepage monitoring systems are not however sensitiveenough to detect small changes in the seepage flow. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Identification of soil parameters in an embankment dam by mathematical optimization

    Författare :Pooya Vahdati; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The finite element method (FEM) has been widely used to analyse earth and rockfill dams. In a finite element analysis a proper constitutive model has to be chosen for each part of the dam in order to simulate the relation between stresses and strains. The zones of an earth and rockfill dam have different functions. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Suffusion of Glacial Till Dam Cores : An Experimental Investigation

    Författare :Ingrid Silva; Jan Laue; Peter Viklander; Cristina Jommi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : Suffusion, also called internal instability, is an internal erosion mechanism that occurs in embankment dams when fine-grained particles are washed out of the core soil matrix by seepage. Initiation of internal erosion depends mainly on three major factors: grain size distribution of the soil, stress conditions and hydraulic load; whilst its continuation depends of the filter properties.
