Abstract

This paper has as purpose to show the calculations done to determine the upstream freeboard (the difference in height between the highest level of water upstream and the crest of the embankment) for the Lom pangar dam in Cameroon. The submersion of an embankment due to waves could affect its lifespan and it is thus necessary to verify the height of the crest of the dam in a way that would protect it against a maximum increase of the water level.
