The objective of this research was to study some of the factors leading to transverse cracking in low-embankment dams using finite element analyses. The factors studied were 1 the analysis procedure, gravity turn-on or construction sequence, 2 the magnitude and time of occurrence of the settlement of the dam, 3 the stress-strain characteristics of the dam material, and 4 the shape of the abutment profile.
