Results of the refraction and seismic up-hole geophysical studies made In Talconapan dam site at Atexcaco river Puebla, are presented.

The velocity profile models obtained from the up-hole method shows lithostratigraphic correlation.

This paper presents a two dimensional strain modeling, calculated by finite elements. This allows to determinate strain concentration zones which must be taken in account for the design.
