    Ljubomir Tanchev, Professor on dams and hydraulic structures, University of Skopje, Macedonia This book fills a lacuna in the available comprehensive literature on Geotechnical Engineering of Dams. Washington, D. The main problem is settlement, excessive percolation loss, and need of protection of the foundation at the downstream toe from erosion. An intuitive sense of amalgamating both theory and practice is the distinguished and remarkable feature of the book. Introduction 2.

    Rock mechanics is the theoretical and applied science of the mechanical behaviour of rock and rock masses; it is that branch of mechanics concerned with the response of rock and rock masses to the force-fields of their physical environment. Google Scholar Paige, S. He has more than 50 years of experience and was awarded the John Jaeger Memorial Medal for Contributions to Geomechanics in Bibliographic information. The influence of geology on the location, design and construction of water supply dams in the Canberra area, Bur.

    Some dam sites may be relatively uniform in their geology ie one rock type with a simple structure and a regular pattern of surface weathering. Dam Geology. Foundation Grouting There may be considerable settlement of the dam if the clay is unconsolidated and the moisture content is high. He has been involved in dam investigation, design and construction, and particularly worked on hydroelectric developments at all stages from inception to operation. Careful exploration including drilling and seismic sounding can be used to such hidden topography.

Patrick MacGregor is a Consulting Engineering Geologist with more than 40 years experience in the assessment of geological constraints for major civil engineering projects in a number of countries. Subject Index Description Dams and Earthquakes deals with the association of earthquakes and large artificial lakes, particularly on the part that pore pressure plays in inducing earthquakes.

The engineering geology report can also be prepared in conjunction with a geotechnical report, but commonly provides the same geotechnical analysis and design recommendations that would be presented in a geotechnical report.

London: Newnes-Butterworths, p. A possible correlation between the reservoir level or volume of the injected fluid and the tremor frequency exists. He has worked on over dams worldwide and has been involved in all aspects of planning, site investigation, design and construction of embankment dams.

He has worked on over dams worldwide and has been involved in all aspects of planning, site investigation, design and construction of embankment dams. In seismically active area, it is necessary to assess the degree of earthquake tremors and design must include provisions for the added loading and increased stresses.

He has 51 years of experience and was awarded the John Jaeger Memorial Medal for Contributions to Geomechanics in The following two examples are of dams where the site geology was a very significant factor in the design and overall layout of the entire project: Glennies Creek Dam: A 10 metre thick layer of completely weathered, non-welded tuff a soil type material at the dam site had a controlling influence on the choice of type of dam and the siting of the dam, diversion tunnel and the spillway; in fact, the whole project layout was determined by the outcrop and weathering pattern of the non-welded tuff.
