Use of the ICOLD Bulletin 164 on internal erosion in existing dams, London

About this event

Using case histories where sufficient details are available, the presentation explains how the ICOLD Bulletin makes it possible to investigate if a dam is vulnerable to internal erosion by assessing the water level at which erosion will initiate, and to investigate the capabilities of the materials in zoned dams to arrest erosion, sometimes after considerable leakage and damage.
