Behavior of Granular Materials Affected by Grain Breakage


In geotechnical and particularly in dam engineering, observations in the field and, in some cases, dramatic failures of structures have often incited research and increased knowledge. For instance, the first rockfill dams were elevated without any prior knowledge of the mechanical capacities of the rockfill mass. As natural and local resources are usually preferred for economic and environmental issues, their non-optimal properties can lead to potential severe damage to the hydraulic structure. Similarly, a basic principle of construction of rockfill dams or embankments consists in sluicing rockfill after deposition and before compaction: this recommendation has been adopted for a long time. However, the beneficial effects of such a practice have been understood only in light of recent studies on unsaturated soil and multi-scale analyses.
