Reinforced Embankment - An Efficient Method to Stabilize Gotvand Powerhouse Upper Trenches

A. Zabihollah Zadeh, M. R. Zahedi, and M. H. Najdi
Abstract—Exposed hydroelectric power plant of Upper Gotvand Dam had required stabilization at eastern encompassing trenches. Necessity of establishment of power transmitting station upon these trenches and remarkable load exerted has made structure much more important. Basic surveys were accomplished, and then shotcrete and rock bolt sketch was replaced by reinforced embankment retaining wall because of some apparent advantages. Technical characteristics of structure were evoked based on bed peculiarities, structural behavior analysis, and required final attributes. Thus, embankment, galvanized belts, and facade wall precast concrete segments were characterized afterwards. Construction sequences were explained and major profits have been articulated. For instance, flexibility, considerable burden and settlement tolerances, and relatively easy and fast construction could be named.

Index Terms—Galvanized steel belts, precast segments, reinforced embankment, and retaining walls.
