The use of geosynthetics has been a common practice in geotechnical engineering when the improvement of local soil characteristics is necessary. This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of the performance of HDPE geomembrane as impermeable blanket installed upstream of embankment dams, a treatment technique for very permeable foundation. Data base...

Finger drains are linear drains used to collect and conduct percolated water in embankment dams. They are arranged crosswise into earth dams, either permanently or as a technique to treat clogged filters. Given their easy operation, they are often applied in engineering practice, without the aid of specific dimensioning techniques in many cases. The aim of this ...
