Potrerillos dam is a 120m high CFRD dam recently built in Mendoza, Argentina. The dam was built on top of a riverbed containing loose sand seams. Concern about the seismic stability of the dam derived in the construction of a large downstream buttress, not considered in the original design and Read more... about Case study of the post-earthquake behavior of a CFRD dam
