Earth Dam: Types of Earthen Dam and its Construction.

The most satisfactory cores are of clay mixed with sand and tine gravel. Diaphragm-type dams have a thin central section of concrete, steel, or timber which serves as a water barrier, while the surrounding earth or rock till provides stability. Thin concrete sections are easily cracked by differential earth loads, and it is difficult to
