A calculation procedure, results of the stress-strain and strength state studies of earth dams under the effect of their own weight and hydrostatic pressure of water are given in the paper in a generalized plane-deformed state, taking into account real geometry of a dam, design features and inhomogeneous properties of the structure materials. Three different earth dams with their design features are considered in the paper. Potential dangerous zones (in the dam body) with reduced strength
