Large stones are used in construction to serve as erosion control, dikes, dams, backfill, and harbor breakwater and other large structures. Large stone refers to the granular size of aggregate, that is averaging 3 in. or greater.
This 4-hour course will examine the use of large stones used under several different circumstances. Several different engineering uses will be discussed. Examples will be presented that would be useful to aid the design in using the most effective layout of dams, dikes, breakwaters and other structures.
This course should be read by anyone with an interest in dam design, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics, and hydrology or anyone wanting to know more information regarding construction with large stones. After reading this course the student would have furthered their knowledge regarding construction with large stones.
The course materials are based solely on the engineering manual “Construction with Large Stone” as found on the website of the Army Corps of engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
