Dam Safety 2022: Workshop - The Development of Dam Safety Technology and Governance Systems in Response to Major Dam Safety Incidents and Failures

Please note - This workshop has been canceled. We will attempt to hold this workshop at a future conference. 

Full-Day Workshop: The Development of Dam Safety Technology and Governance Systems in Response to Major Dam Safety Incidents and Failures

This workshop will present the history of dam safety technology and governance systems development in the areas of seepage, shear strength of clays and clay shales, embankment stability analyses, liquefaction, and rock foundation stability. Timelines illustrating technology development will be presented along with overviews of significant technology milestones. The influence of major dam failures and incidents that helped to drive technology and governance system development will be reviewed including presentations on major failures such as St. Francis Dam, CA; Fort Peck Dam, MT; Malpassett Dam, Italy; Lower San Fernando Dam, CA; Teton Dam, ID; and Big Bay Dam, MS. A list of key references will be provided to all attendees to assist in workshop preparation and self-study following the workshop.
