Satudy of the Geotextile Effect as a Filter and Drain in Earth Dams

New Satudy of the Geotextile Effect as a Filter and Drain in Earth Dams

Filters and drains consist 5 to 10 percent of the total volume of soil operations.  Replacing Geotextile drainage with filter and granular drainage improves efficiency and reduces cost.  It was first used in 1970 at the Valcros dam of France with a height of 17 meters from the non-woven geotextile around the downstream sandy drainage and also under the Riprap the upstream surface protector was used.

Site's Objectives in Presenting this Project
This project studies the geotextile effect as a filter and drain in earth dams.This project could be helpful for university students, researchers and etc. Also it could be proved useful in scientific and industrial projects, and MSc and PhD theses. In some cases, university students require investigation and research for their MSc and PhD theses. Since the present project consists of a complete project and includes all university flowcharts, it could prove useful.
