  1. 1. Seepage monitoring in embankment dams

    Author : Sam Johansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Internal erosion, which is one of the major reasons forembankment dam failure, causes an increased seepage flow due toloss of fines. A seepage measuring system is therefore a vitalpart of an embankment dam’s monitoring system. Manyexisting seepage monitoring systems are not however sensitiveenough to detect small changes in the seepage flow. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resistivity investigation and monitoring for detection of internal erosion and anomalous seepage in embankment dams

    Author : Pontus Sjödahl; Teknisk geologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; internal erosion; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; time-lapse inversion; inversion; monitoring; modelling; resistivity; detection; leakage; seepage; teknisk geografi; embankment dam;

    Abstract : Methods for monitoring seepage and detecting internal erosion are essential for the safety evaluation of embankment dams. Internal erosion is one of the major reasons for embankment dam failures, and there are several tenths of thousands of large embankment dams in the world. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of grout curtains under dams founded on rock

    Author : Suihan Zhang; Fredrik Johansson; Johan Funehag; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Grout curtains; Rock grouting; Dams; Erosion; Infilling materials in rock fractures; Injekteringsridåer; Berginjektering; Dammar; Erosion; Sprickfyllnadsmaterial; Soil and Rock Mechanics; Jord- och bergmekanik;

    Abstract : Grouting has long been implemented as a ground improvement technique to reduce the seepage through the rock mass. Grout curtains are usually constructed under dams as a barrier to prevent leakage from the reservoir. So far, the grout curtains under dams have mainly been designed by using an empirical design approach. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stability of tailings dams : focus on water cover closure

    Author : Annika Bjelkevik; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Mining activities have been ongoing for thousands of years within Sweden. As the results of previous activities are evident today, i.e. for example acid mine drainage (AMD), the focus and interest on closure and remediation of mine sites and tailings storage facilities (TSFs) has increased.

  5. 5. Internal erosion in embankment dams : fluid flow through and deformation of porous media

    Author : J. Gunnar I. Hellström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : A basic understanding of fluid flow through a porous media facilitates a comprehensive understanding of internal erosion in embankment dams. Hence, it is necessary to reveal the detailed seepage flow, the flow-induced forces acting within the porous media and the fluid flow deformation of the porous media. READ MORE
