Abstract text:
The analysis of a dam operation safety as well as of other hydrotechnical constructions involves a hydraulic and structural technical expertise. Over time, changes of operational parameters for some dams result in changes of their structural and hydraulic behavior. We have studied such a case using our own designed software for checking the present seepage situation and the slope stability of an earth dam. The obtained results revealed the new safety parameters of the dam and leaded to new solutions for controlling the hydraulic erosion phenomena.
Key Words:
operation; safety; earth dams.
