Construction and Verification of Ground Improvements at Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam
Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam, part of the Folsom Dam and Reservoir Project near Sacramento, California, is founded on alluvial materials that were dredged and processed for gold on several...

Rive, Rive-Grown and Burst Probability of Rolled Compressive Concrete Arch Dam
The rive, every step of the rive grown and even burst of arch dam are regarded as sequence random events. Making use of the probability theory and the achievement of elastic, elastic-plastic...

A Review of Fluid Movement in Compacted Clay: The Case of Macropore Flow
In constructing natural hydraulic barriers to infiltration, a typical design is one founded on the use of layers of compacted clay. Unfortunately, in analyzing the hydraulic performance...

Sliplining: Design and Installation Considerations for Polyethylene Pipe
The design methodology and installation procedure for polyethylene slipline renewal are discussed. When designing there are two critical phases which must be considered: (1) short-term...

Analysis of Pavement-Pipeline Systems After Cut Restoration
The placement of utility pipes normally necessitates many cuts and fills of the existing pavements. Integrity of pipeline and compatible performance of cut restoration and original pavement...

Application Cases of Slurry Seal in Japan
In Japan, slurry seal began to be used for repairing asphalt pavements at around 1963, mostly for repairs of prefectural and municipal roads. In recent years, however, it has rarely been...

Drawdown Stability of a Compacted Shale Rockfill

Aspects of the Behavior of Clays on Drying
The drying behavior of compacted London Clay mixed with varying proportions of fine sand is examined, measuring the changes of sample volume, water content and suction. Particular attention...

Elasto-Plastic Volume Change of Unsaturated Compacted Clay
Isotropic compression tests were performed on samples of unsaturated compacted kaolin in a modified triaxial cell that allowed separate control of pore water pressure and pore air pressure....

Flow Properties of Unsaturated Soils Under Controlled Suction
Laboratory tests were performed for the hydraulic characterization of three compacted soils under high suction. Moisture changes were studied considering some factors affecting the time...

Transit Times Through Compacted Clay Liners
Transit time, or time taken by waste liquid to move through the thickness of the liner, is a short-term performance parameter which can be used to determine the necessary liner thickness....

Unsaturated Soils
This proceedings, Unsaturated Soils, consists of papers presented at sessions of the 1993 ASCE National Convention and Exposition held in Dallas,...

Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Relief Wells
The U.S. Army Engineer District, Vicksburg has developed an expedient method of rehabilitating arrays of large numbers of gravity flowing relief wells located along the toe of dams using...

Connection of Grouted Tubular Insert Piles to Soil
Force transfer between offshore production jackets and tubular piles is effected by weld bead shear connectors, acting within the grout filled annulus between the piles and pile sleeves...

The Influence of Protective Material on Local Scour Dimensions
Protective materials installed around the base of a bridge pier can reduce or prevent local scour. The performance of four materials: grout mats, grout bags, footings, and riprap, are...

Glass-Fiber Reinforcing Rod: Characterization and Application to Concrete Structures and Grouted Anchors
This paper presents the physical and mechanical characteristics of a new glass-fiber reinforcing rod which was developed to be used as a rebar for concrete structures or a tendon for grouted...

Building Protection from Tunneling in Downtown Los Angeles

Grouting Techniques for Excavation Support

Design and Proposed Construction Techniques for Pangue Dam
The paper describes the site conditions, design and proposed construction methods for the 115 m high Pangue Dam, Chile's first RCC dam. Trial mix design work and test embankments...

Roller Compacted Concrete Arch/Gravity Dams—South African Experience
The paper traces the development of roller compacted concrete (RCC) dams in South Africa, and in particular the application to arch/gravity dams. The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry...
