  5. Internal Erosion of Dams and Their Foundations

    Selected and Reviewed Papers from the Workshop on Internal Erosion and Piping of Dams and their Foundations, Aussois, France, 25–27 April 2005

    Edited by Robin Fell, Jean-Jacques Fry

    Internal erosion and piping in embankments and their foundations is the main cause of failures and accidents to embankment dams. For new dams, the potential for internal erosion and piping can be controlled by good design and construction of the core of the dam and provision of filters to intercept...
