    Beliche Dam, a zoned earthdam with rockfill shouldersand a central clay core, experienced large collapse settlements due to reservoir impounding and direct action of rainfall. Long-term field records of vertical and ...
  • Aznalcóllar dam failure. Part 1: Field observations and material properties 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Gens Solé, Antonio (Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2006)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper describes the failure of Aznalcóllar dam, in southern Spain, in April 1998. The rockfill dam slid forward and released a flow of acid-saturated tailings. The geology and geomorphology of the site are described. ...
  • Aznalcóllar dam failure. Part 2: Stability conditions and failure 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2006)
    Article
    Open Access
    An analysis of the conditions that led to the failure of the Aznalcóllar dam is made in the paper. Pore water pressures prevailing in the foundation clay at the time of the failure have been established on the basis of ...
  • Aznalcóllar dam failure. Part 3: Dynamics of the motion 

    Gens Solé, Antonio; Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (Institution of Civil Engineers (http://www.ice.org.uk/), 2006)
    Article
    Open Access
    The motion of the Aznalcóllar dam slide, after the initiation of the failure, is examined in the paper. The moving mass remained essentially rigid, and Newton’s second law provides the basic equation to determine the ...
