Document Type: Journal Paper
Abstract: The August, 1966, Specialty Conference is summarized briefly. The distinction between stability analysis and dam design is restated. The empirical nature of the science of soil mechanics has been noted and the importance of slope measurements and their evaluation is stressed. It has been emphasized that the design of earth and rock dams is a continuing process throughout construction. Computers can serve as powerful tools when used properly.
