A Review of the Embankment Dam with Asphalt Concrete Core

Embankment dams almost built with all types of the soils, it has more advantage than concrete dame. But there was some benefits for designer to use embankment dams with asphalt concrete core, more than 50 years, asphalt concrete is used as a flexible and impermeable layer in dams. Germany is a pioneer in this industry.

Asphalt concrete cores for embankment dams -

AddThis. More than 70 embankment dams with asphalt concrete cores are currently at the design stage, under construction or in operation worldwide. Helge Saxegaard gives a brief historic background to this type of dam. The use of asphalt in construction and for waterproofing structures can be traced back over a period of 5000 years.

Nov 10, 2021  Abstract. The site for the high Quxue Dam has a narrow canyon with very steep abutments and complex geology in Sichuan Province, China. Various types of embankment and concrete dams were considered and an asphalt-core embankment dam (ACED), 174 m high, was selected. The asphalt core is a slender impervious element in an embankment dam and some ...

The behavior of rockfill embankment on application of reservoir water load in case of face dam is compared with that for the case of central earth core dam. The effect of valley abutment slopes on the movement of rockfill and consequent development of stresses in the embankment in cross‐valley transverse direction is brought out.
