Behavior of Completed RCC Damsby Ernest K. Schrader,
Abstract: Enough roller compacted concrete dams have been completed to allow an overall evaluation of this new approach to construction. Performance has been good. No operational restrictions have been necessary on any of the completed projects. Cracking has been minimal. Special techniques developed with this evolving technology have successfully controlled seepage. Not only have the structures been a technical success, but they generally have saved substantial time and money. From a review of the performance of these first RCC dams, a better idea can be ascertained of what to expect from future projects.
