Proceedings of a specialty conference on hydraulic fill structures, held in Fort Collins, Colorado, August 15-18, 1988. Sponsored by the Geotechnical Engineering Division of ASCE.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 53 papers covering many aspects of hydraulic fill structures with special emphasis on geotechnical issues. The papers present an excellent review of historical development, as well as art and practice of hydraulic fill structures. Topics include: excavation, transport, and deposition; material properties; static and dynamic stability; soil improvement/geosynthetics; new developments, and case histories. Specific areas of interest include historical reviews, dredging technology and dredge spoil disposal, depositional behavior, mine backfill, tailings disposal, slurry pipelines, hydraulic fill properties and behavior, static and dynamic loading conditions, densification and improvement of hydraulic fills, artificial islands, land reclamation, and case histories of successes and failures.
