CONSTRUCTION AND PROTECTION OF ROADBED ACROSS RESERVOIR AREAS

The construction and protection of roadbed across reservoir areas present many problems that are not encountered in normal roadbed construction. These problems can be subdivided into three sections. Determination of Wave Heights, Construction of Embankment and Roadbed, Construction of Embankment Protection. Extensive treatment is given to the first of these sections. The term "reservoir area" as used in this report also includes lakes, natural and artificial river pools, and other inland waters on which waves may be generated.
