TC210 Embankment Dams

Embankment Dams

To promote co-operation and exchange of information concerning research and developments in geotechnical issues of dam construction among TC members and ISSMGE member societies.

1.   Promote conferences, short courses, webinars, theme lectures etc. Provide links from TC210 website.

2.   Encourage members to contribute to ISSMGE programmes.

3.   Launch an ISSMGE TC210 conference series: International Conference on Geotechnics  of Embankment Dams. The first conference is tentatively arranged in 2020 in Chengdu, China, which is close to a number of modern highrise rockfill dams.  

4.   Launch an ISSMGE lecture in honour of a distinguished researcher in embankment dam engineering.

5.   Launch a Developing Country Training Program, which supports delegates from developing countries to attend conferences and training programs organised by TC210.

To develop guidelines and bulletins for the design, construction and safe operation of embankment dams.

1.   Set up a list of publications recommended by members of TC210, published on the TC210 website.

2.   Present web based documents on the state of the art of dam engineering.

3.   Summarise the codes of practices in member society countries or regions.

4.   Identify new challenges in dam engineering practices: sustainability, climate change, data analytics, etc.

5.   Develop TC210 design guidelines in emerging niche areas.

6.   Summarize and share experiences on dealing with geotechnical problems in dam construction practices.

7.  Encourage reports and discussions on dam failure incidents and solutions for dams under complex geological conditions.

To assist with technical programs of international and regional conferences organized by the ISSMGE:

  1. Organise workshops and encourage paper submission to international and regional ISSMGE conferences.
  2. Launch an ISSMGE TC210 conference series: International Conference on Geotechnics of Embankment Dams.
