Balkmm, 1977 Repcm~s a series of tests set up to investigate bedrock which had become decompressed as a result of excavation for a gravity dam. Deformation, pore pressure distribution~ and rock elastic properties are being monitared. Instrumentation at the site is described.

The coverage includes: design considsrations, data and criteria (with sections on foundation investigations and concrete properties), layout and amalysis (incl~ding dynamic amalysis and finite element analysis for dams and foumdations), and foumdation treatment (excavation, gr~/tlng and drainage). 793161 THREE-DIMENSIONAL DEFORMATION ANALYSIS OF THE STORVASS DAM Martin, H L Int J Num A r ~ Meth Gec~ech, V2, NI, Jan-March 1978, P3-17 A three-dimensional finite elmnent program is used to analyse an 80m high rockfill dam in Norway. An analysis is made to predict the deformed shape of the dam and the internal stresses ard strains due to resarvoi: filling, in order to assist with the ultimate design of a concrete membrane for the upstreem face. 793162 STUDY ON THE CRACK G ~ I O N IN FILL-TYPE DAMS Narita, K; Ohne, Y Soils Found, VI8, N1, March 1978, Pll-24 The problem of transverse cracks caused by differential settlement in the longitudinal sections of high embankments is analysed and effective methods for estimating and controlling cracks in design and construction are considered. A linear elastic finite element analysis is performed, and shown to be an effective predictive tool. A practical method of assessing the possibility of crack generation is proposed taking the tensile strain as a criterion. 793163 DIAGRAM FOR CONSTRUCTION CONTROL OF EMBANKMENT ON SOFT GROUND Matsuo, M; Kswamt~a, K Soils Found, V17, N3, Sept 1977, P37-52 Describes a method in which the degree of safety at the start is ascertained ~ successive failure is predicted by observing the vertical settlement at the central point Just urzler an embankment and the horizontal displacement near the toe of the slope. Observed and numerical examples are given and on the basis of these the diagram for construction control is proposed.

There are 4 papers on the following topics: I) settlement of embankments, which outli.~es a new method for predicting the rate and n~gnitude of settlement on com!~essib!e st~soilss 2) stability of embankments, which critically reviews current methods of assessing stability, 3 ) predicted performance of soft clay urger a trial embankment loading based on the Cam-Clay model, 4) the centrifuge test as part of the design system for road embankments.
