The concrete was poured against the smooth cleavage faces of the schist and adhered to them, but there was little more adherence between the schist laminations themselves than between the sheets of a pile of paper. . 34 ADVANCED DAM ENGINEERING FOR DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND REHABILITATION 2. Consideration must be given to foundation capability under a full range of foreseeable conditions, including shearing and weakening due to wetting. 3. The need for foundation grouting has to be carefully assessed.

Because of the lack of symmetry between the two abutments, the overall modulus of 1000 MPa was replaced by 1500 MPa for the right abutment and 500 MPa for the left abutment. According to this concept, the modulus of the left abutment rock was exceptionally low. Consequently, the left abutment thrust block would have been subjected to excessive and more unfavorably directed loading-for example, 25,000 tons instead of 5000 tons. Under such conditions the thrust block in the left abutment would have been displaced in an early stage of the failure.

By widening the base of the arch, incorporating a peripheral joint, and adding a concrete slab to the upstream toe of the dam, tensile stresses along the rock foliation are reduced, and the opening of a crack at the base of the arch is avoided. The grout curtain (A) and associated drainage screen (8) , which are inclined upstream, substantially reduce seepage forces and cause the resultant force (S) to act perpendicular to the plane of the fault, a direction favorable to the stability of the foundation.
