That's in addition to the obvious perk of improving scheduling and optimizing site layouts, among other benefits."I call
Arch dams, classically curved monoliths situated in narrow valleys, are not as common as other types of dams, such as embankment dams and gravity dams. ENR takes a look at some of the biggest arch dams in the world, both completed and under construction.
