London: H.M.S.O., (OCoLC) Material Type. New evidence relating to construction events and field measurements at the Carsington embankment reveals an unusual mechanism of articulated slips commencing within the base of the mudstone fill along shear planes built in at the centre of the valley from an early stage of by: 9.
The factor of safety was 16 with intact strengths and 14 after allowance for shears. The reduction to 11 was due to progressive failure; from 11 to 10 it was due to lateral load transfer.

Description Failure of Carsington Embankment FB2
In this way, the failure was thought to have been propagated along the length of the embankment, causing the m-long collapse. Conclusions. The failure of Carsington dam was caused by a progressive failure, probably due to the “boot” which caused a deep-seated movement to be the critical mode of collapse.
The work on modes of failure and monitoring and measuring techniques is also relevant to a number of other initiatives recommended in the Defra research and development (R&D) strategy.

Further earthfill was instructed to be placed in the third construction season, and the avoidable failure took place just as the embankment dam was being completed to full height. Post-failure investigations were carried out and published by others, including a Governmental Report and several technical papers.
Failure Case Studies in Civil Engineering: Structures, Foundations, and the Geoenvironment, Second Edition, provides short descriptions of 50 real-world examples of constructed works that did not perform as intended.
Designed for classroom use, each case study contains a brief summary, lessons learned, and references to key sources.
