The numerical analysis of a 171m high asphalt-faced rockfill dam (AFRD) for tailings storage and power generation is presented for both static and seismic conditions. For static loading, the effect of compaction was investigated and FoS were computed in Read more... about Deformation analysis of an AFRD for mine tailings storage and power generation

Potrerillos dam is a 120m high CFRD dam recently built in Mendoza, Argentina. The dam was built on top of a riverbed containing loose sand seams. Concern about the seismic stability of the dam derived in the construction of a large downstream buttress, not considered in the original design and Read more... about Case study of the post-earthquake behavior of a CFRD dam

A numerical procedure for the preliminary estimation of the earthquake-induced settlement of concrete face rockfill dams is presented. The method is based on a simple constitutive model that accounts for the key features of the behavior of coarse grained materials that affect the response of Read more... about Numerical Assessment of the Deformation of CFRD Dams during Earthquakes
