Geotechnical Investigations for Dams Identifying needs Understanding the ground you work on is the best way to reduce project risks and enable the design of reliable and cost effective infrastructure that performs as expected.

The geotechnical conditions encountered during excavation of a dam foundation can be the highest risk aspect of a project. The paper describes the current state of practice in the use of the following specialty construction techniques: drilling and grouting; Category 1 Cutoff Walls (excavate and replace); Category 2 Structures (mix in-situ); and rock anchors.
