IMPROVED FILTER CRITERION FOR COHESIONLESS SOIL. DISCUSSION

This is a discussion of a paper of the above title by Y. Honjo and D. Veneziano published in the January 1989, Vol 115, No 1 issue of this journal. It is noted that evidence is conclusive that the authors' improved filter-design criterion results in filters that are too coarse for certain broadly graded base soil gradations. Finer filters are needed to prevent erosion and the development of concentrated leaks or sinkholes in the central cores of embankment dams constructed with these broadly graded soils.
