 Guidelines: Guide Specifications   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Construction of the embankment and spillway must be completed by the first of November to prevent failure during construction due to overtopping of the embankment from flood.
Embankments shall be constructed to the lines and grades and cross sections indicated on the drawings, unless otherwise directed by the engineer.
Any material placed in the embankment which fails to meet the requirements of the specifications, or which may have been placed or compacted at times or in a manner not acceptable to the engineer, shall be removed and disposed of or replaced properly at no cost to the owner.

 Item 203 Roadway Excavation and Embankment
Embankment construction shall consist of preparation of the areas upon which embankments are to be placed; the placing and compacting of approved material within roadway areas where unsuitable material has been removed; and the placing and compacting of embankment material in holes, pits and other depressions within the roadway area.
When embankment is to be placed on both sides of a concrete wall or a pipe or box type structure, operations shall be so conducted that the embankment is always at approximately the same elevation on both sides of the structure.
Embankment and subgrade material which does not contain sufficient moisture to be compacted in accordance with the requirements of this subsection shall be sprinkled with water as directed by the Engineer to bring the moisture content to within the range needed to meet the density requirements.

 Scrap Tires - User Guideline - Embankment or Fill
Embankments containing tire shreds or chips are constructed by completely surrounding the shreds or chips with a geotextile fabric and placing at least 0.9 m (3 ft) of natural soil between the top of the scrap tires and the roadway.
Embankments present an excellent opportunity to utilize large volumes of scrap tires from one location and, under the proper logistical circumstances, can be a very economical alternative to imported earth borrow.
However, the overall settlement or deflection of a tire chip embankment can be monitored over time by the installation of settlement plates or platforms, slope indicator devices, and bench marks along the slopes of the embankment and within or adjacent to the roadway.

 Victoria Embankment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Coal Fly Ash - User Guideline - Embankment or Fill
To prepare this type of fly ash for use as embankment material, the ash may need to be lightly conditioned with water (10 to 15 percent), stockpiled for several weeks, and passed through a crusher to remove agglomerations prior to its use as fill.
It is, therefore, important that the base of a fly ash embankment not be exposed to free moisture, wetlands, or the presence of a high water table condition.
For long-term stability of fly ash embankments, a factor of safety (ratio of the resisting forces to the driving forces along a potential failure surface) of 1.5 is recommended using the Swedish circle method of slope stability analysis.

 Plymouth, Embankment
The Southern Embankment house was a little to the north of where the Plymouth and Dartmoor Railway crossed (it is now Embankment Lane) and there was a fourth just the Plymouth side of the Laira Bridge Toll Gate, on the old non-parochial boundary of the creek that had been reclaimed.
Mr Debnam challenged this in court, where it was ruled that the road from the old toll house in St Jude's Road to the gate near the Laira Bridge was free for purposes of ordinary traffic.
Plymouth Corporation purchased the Embankment Company in 1897 for the price of £22,500 but as the tolls collected made a profit of only £1,000 per year, it was not until 1924 that the collection of tolls was able to cease.

 Lake embankment erosion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The erosion cuts deep furrows in the embankment and deposits large amounts of mud on the road at the bottom of the embankment.
This sand was moved to the edge of the embankment and in the process blocked the perimeter drain which carries rain water along the length of the lake to runoff drains down the slope of the embankment.
It is important to note that in portions where the perimeter drain is not blocked, the mud embankment is undamaged and free this kind of erosion.

Notwithstanding this, the bed of the Po tends continually to rise, and the waters of that river, contained by embankments, are seven, ten, and even seventeen feet above the level of the lands through which they flow.
The rivers of Continental Italy that empty into the Adriatic Sea are divided into four groups: (a) the Po and its tributaries; (b) the Venetian rivers; (c) the rivers of the Romagna, and (d) the rivers of Istria, grouped on account of their special characteristics.
Although the sources of some of these rivers are known, it is difficult to say where and how they empty into the sea; the Bacchiglione is a type of them.

 Time Supplement [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Einstein's idea is that without reference to the frame, there is no fixed time interval between two events, no 'actual' duration between them.
Einstein illustrated his idea for two observers, one on a moving train in the middle of the train, and a second observer standing on the embankment next to the train tracks.
If the observer sitting in the middle of the rapidly moving train receives signals simultaneously from lightning flashes at the front and back of the train, then in his reference frame the two lightning strikes were simultaneous.
