Evaluation of expected damage costs for earth-fill breaches due to heavy rains by response surface method

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In this study, the damage costs due to dam breaches are estimated by the response surface method. The procedure for calculating the risks and the expected total cost at earth-fill sites, based on the estimated damage costs, is presented. The proposed approach is applied to actual earth-fill dam sites; and consequently, the possibility of its practical use is proved.
