Abstract: A study was undertaken to determine how embankments behave when overtopped and, based on this knowledge, to predict overtopping performance of different types of embankments (earthen , rock fill, etc.) and to recommend defensive measures that would increase the durability of an overtopped embankment. An experience-oriented approach was taken. Pertinent literature was reviewed. Prototype dams subjected to overtopping, centrifuge modeling of overtopping embankments, and numerical modeling techniques are described.
