Table 1: Potential for surfacing internal erosion in glacial moraine core embankment dams

Table 1: Potential for surfacing internal erosion in glacial moraine core embankment dams
Kenny & Lau 1 (1985, 1986)

1. Internally unstable if H/F 9 DB95 regardless of internal stability. Foster & Fell (2001) continuing erosion boundary. Re-grade core soil on the 4.75mm sieve.
3. Sherard and Dunnigan (1989) no erosion boundary (soil group 2 base soils).
