Abstract

Maroon dam is one of the largest embankment dams in Iran, which is located in south west of the country. Because of the importance of this dam, a complete monitoring program with a regular observation has been done during and after construction. To evaluate the stability of the dam body at present and at loading conditions which may be experienced in future, a large amount of data obtained from instrumentation system has been processed carefully and are used for back analyses with numerical method. Aim of these back analyses is to estimate strength and deformation parameters of different embankment material zones. The back analyses are performed at end of construction and after reservoir filling. For instance, changes in displacement, pore pressure and stress in specific points of dam body are compared with those histories obtained from back analyses.
