Introduction. Engineering and economical investigations in dam construction projects throughout the world indicate that, in many cases, rockfill dams with impervious clay cores are the best selection for the final design (Rezaei and Salehi, ).This approach makes the investigation of different issues affecting the stability of rockfill dams by: Earth Dams-The most important variables affecting construction of earthfill embankments are the distribution of soils, method of placement, water content, and compaction.

Such loose cohesionless soils are potential sources of failures and are real hazards in hydraulic dam construction. Rockfill Dams.

With the use of rockfill to build embankment, it is not a concern regarding the build-up of pore water pressure during construction so that the embankment can be filled at the faster rate.

Moreover, the use of rockfill allows a steeper angle in forming road embankment when compared with earthfill so that it results in a small amount of fill. The factors to be considered in the earthquake-resistant design of dams are discussed and defensive measures which may be taken to mitigate the effects of these factors are summarized.

Last but not least, an understanding of the potential failure of Earth dams is important in the design and construction process of the Earth dams.

Earth dams, also called earthen or earth-filled dams are generally built in or near drainage line which has the variety of purposes including domestic water supplies, agricultural irrigation, water.

Constructing concrete-faced rockfill dams (CFRDs) with weak rocks has great advantages as a result of the use of local materials, cost-effectiveness, extensive adaptability, simple construction, and short construction period. However, the behaviors of CFRDs constructed with weak rocks are not well-understood.

2- Hydraulic fill dam. 1- Rolled fill dam In the rolled fill dam, the embankment is constructed in successive, mechanically compacted layers by “rollers”. 2- Hydraulic fill dam In the case of Hydraulic fill dam, the materials are excavated, transported and.Dams, which are constructed of earth and rock materials, are generally referred to as embankment dams or fill-type dams.

The history of construction of embankment dams is much older than that of concrete dams. It is evident that some earth dams were constructed about 3, years ago in the cradles of ancient cultures such as east Size: KB.
