MODEL TESTING TECHNIQUE FOR EARTH DAMS

A PRACTICAL METHOD, BASED ON THE PRINCIPLE OF DIMENSIONAL SIMILITUDE, BY WHICH A SCALE MODEL TEST OF AN EARTH DAM CAN BE PERFORMED IS PRESENTED. FOR THIS PURPOSE, IN THE MODEL A MATERIAL WITH SMALL VALUE OF COHESION IS TO BE USED. IT IS SUGGESTED, ON THE BASIS OF EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION, THAT A MIXTURE OF VISCOUS LIQUID AND SAND CAN BE USED FOR MODEL MATERIAL. /AUTHOR/
