Vertical stone erection of Dam Walls Xplained!

Vertical stones installed to reduce wave forces

To reduce the effects of water waves, During the procedure of creation of Dam's,This type of engineering is applied. Stones are erected vertically in between the stone warping.

The vertical stones in the picture will reduce the effect of force imparted by the huge waves. when wave hit any of the vertical stones,it gets divided and split up. 

They again hit next stones and so on, the entire big wave force is nullified,and hence Its effect on the Dam wall will be less.
