Evaluation of Reservoir Seepage in Karst Topography
Areas where seepage is likely to occur in the karst environment of the proposed West County Reservoir, Roanoke County, Virginia have been indentified. Solutioning exists in the form of...

Exploring Karst Terrain with Air Track Drilling
Pneumatic-powered track-mounted, percussion drills can be used to perform or augment geotechnical investigations in some karst settings. The air track drill is best suited to exploring...

Karstic Foundation Problems Sunny Point Railroad
Active limestone sinkholes have been causing problems and affecting the operation of the access railroad to the Military Ocean Terminal, Sunny Point, North Carolina (MOTSU) since 1962....

Geotechnical Exploration and Site Preparation Techniques for Large Mall in Karst Terrain
A large commercial mall and secondary developments were planned for construction in a karst area near Clarksville, Tennessee. A geotechnical exploration was conducted to evaluate the occurence...

Sinkhole Rectification by Compaction Grouting
The unraveling of the overburden by solution activity in karst formations has caused many problems in existing structures and has generated high foundation costs on new construction. Slurry...

Treatment of Karst Along Tennessee Highways
The construction and maintenance of highways in karst areas of East Tennessee has resulted in the occurrence and treatment of induced sinkholes along the ditchlines of numerous highways....

Foundation Treatment of Karstic Features Under TVA Dams
TVA has constructed many of its dams on limestone foundations. Some of these foundations have been highly weathered and required special treatment not only to ensure strength but to develop...

Geotechnical Aspects of Karst Terrains
Exploration, Foundation Design and Performance, and Remedial Measures
The presence of solution cavities in karst terrains poses some unique problems in site exploration, design of foundations, and in remediation of problems with existing structures. Case...

Data from Most Monitoring Wells in Limestone Terranes Are Irrelevant to Pollutant Detection but Reliable Monitoring Can Be Attained: Why and How
The conventional system of using three or more monitoring wells placed down-gradient from a site and one or more background wells placed up-gradient from it is extremely unlikely to detect...

Khao Laem—A Concrete Face Rockfill Dam on Karst
A continuously reinforced concrete faced rockfill dam has been successfully designed and constructed on a karstic limestone foundation in Central West Thailand. The dam is not in an earthquake...
