Abstract: This proceedings, Geotechnical Practice in Dam Rehabilitation, consists of papers presented at the Specialty Conference sponsored by the Geotechnical Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers held in Raleigh, North Carolina, April 25-28, 1993. The conference provided a forum for the discussion of the rehabilitation of dams, including case histories and current geotechnical practice. The topics covered by this proceeding include: 1) Inspection and monitoring of dams; 2) investigation and evaluation of dams and foundations; 3) risk and reliability assessment; 4) increasing reservoir capacity, spillway modifications and overtopping; 5) seepage control; 6) improving stability of dams, foundations and reservoir slopes; 7) rehabilitation for seismic stability; and 8) geosynthetics and ground improvement techniques.
