10.22099/ijstc.2009.712

Abstract

In this research note, a procedure for finding the specifications for compaction of the core material of an earth dam in the humid climate of the north of Iran has been presented.  Laboratory experiments on the soil itself together with studies on samples taken from a test-embankment constructed in the field indicates such a procedure can be followed in order to obtain the specifications for construction of wet cores of dams in other humid regions around the world as well
