concrete dams are like dams shut-off buildings of dams. Concrete dams are made of concrete or brick-work; therefore they have a relatively small road-contact area and a steep water- and downstream faces. The water side is mostly even perpendicular.
On the other hand dams from ground connection or stone material are up-poured. Therefore they have relatively flat embankments.
Accordingly higher loads arise in the road-contact area of concrete dams, so that the underground largerForces to take up to be able must.
As well as concrete dams divide on
