Factors Limiting the Progression of Internal Erosion in Zoned Dams: Flow Limiting by an Upstream Material

AbstractIn zoned dams, some types of materials, when located upstream of a damaged core, may impose high hydraulic losses capable of limiting the flows converging toward the flaw in the core. In this paper, the factors influencing flow limiting by an upstream material are addressed experimentally, u...
