Abstract : A data base system for storage, retrieval, and display of geotechnical construction control earthwork data for earth and rock-fill dams is described and detailed instructions for using the system are given with examples for actual projects. The data system is designed for field project quality control and quality assurance monitoring and rapid display of a variety of construction control data and preparation of reports required by Corps of Engineering (CE) guidance (EM 1110-2-1911, 'Construction Control for Earth and Rock-Fill Dams'). The system provides for easy, interactive data entry and editing with automatic data checks and user specified threshold values that produce warning messages when data exceeds the range of field compaction control criteria. Data storage and retrieval are accomplished using the CE owned SYSTEM 200 Data Base Management System on the Corps-wide Teleprocessing Procurement Service (TPS) operated (1983) by Boeing Computer Service (BCS). The data entry and retrieval programs developed for the data system are designed for a low skill level and minimum training of field project personnel.
