Engineering-geologic conditions at the site of the second lock at the dnepr hydroelectric station
- 14 Downloads
The data presented indicate a considerable complexity in the engineering-geologic conditions at the construction site of the second Dnepr lock, due primarily to the high degree of rock jointing related with the effect of a large regional fault. The tectonic conditions predetermined the nonuniform, generally considerable unloading of the flanks of the construction pit and necessitated the use of stabilizing measures.
The experience gained by the engineering-geologic surveys and documentation of the construction pit is of great scientific and practical interest, since the creation of such a deep cut into granites is being accomplished for the first time in hydrotechnical construction practice in our country.
