Partial Buttress Reservoir Walls

This paper records an investigation info the structural behaviour of a reservoir wall, supported by buttresses curtailed at a low level. A finite difference analysis, supplemented by tests on perspex models, leads to a proposal for an economical design form, and design tables are presented for this. A.A. Wood and F.A.N. Al-Shawi
