Large changes in the soil composition of earthen dams can lead to seismic response that is difficult to predict. 3D models of material properties may help improve future earthquake response at dams with high geomaterial variability. Find out how our group is addressing this challenge in Geomaterial Characterization and Stability Assessment of Hydraulic Fill Dams.
