Abstract

Concrete faced rockfill dams (CFRD) have been widely used for multi-purposes over the world. The construction of CFRD involves placing the higher-grade rock at the dam core, and compacting them to their maximum strength. A reinforced concrete slab is then constructed at the upstream face of the dam. The concrete face will transfer the water pressure to the rocks and finally to the dam foundation. First part of the project is a comprehensive study involved detail studying of CFRD project before a new project can be initiated. The research covers the literature review, geological investigation, civil and structural design principal, construction method and structural behavior. The second part is a case study of Bakun Dam project in Malaysia. Based on the findings, the potential of Bakun Dam in Malaysia is reviewed.
