Rockfill Dams: Performance of Mud Mountain Dam

by Allen S. Cary,


Serial Information: Issue 4, Pg. 1-3


Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Mud Mountain Dam, White River, Washington, an earth and rock fill structure 400 feet high, has settled in the core zone almost exactly as predicted during design studies which were based on large scale consolidation tests. Differential settlement between core and shell zones caused cracking at the crest parallel to the axis of the dam with rock shells settling about 18 inches more than the core.
