Paper presented at the 53rd U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 23–26, 2019
Paper Number: ARMA-2019-0316
... ABSTRACT: International gravity dam foundation design guidelines are suggesting to consider the rock-concrete foundation interface as unbonded and to use the Mohr-Coulomb criterion to assess the structure sliding safety factor. Engineers are invited to use the apparent cohesion with care...
Paper presented at the 51st U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 25–28, 2017
Paper Number: ARMA-2017-0334
... ABSTRACT: As one of three key factors in ground motion, the effect of seismic duration on the dynamic response of gravity dam most focus on theoretical analysis, and few concrete dam model tests are carried out to discuss about it. In order to research the influence of duration on the seismic...

... ABSTRACT: Union Park Dam, a modern roller-compacted concrete (RCC) gravity dam, with its maximum height of 575 feet and crest length of 2,050 feet, will be the key feature of a major Colorado water supply and hydroelectric power project, the Central Colorado Project (CCP) also known...
Paper presented at the The 35th U.S. Symposium on Rock Mechanics (USRMS), June 5–7, 1995
Paper Number: ARMA-95-0915
... ABSTRACT: The paper present the results of parametric study carried out for analysis of 150 m high non-overflow concrete gravity dam resting on rock foundation having zones of varying modulus of deformation of rock material taking different width depth combinations of foundations...

... for friction circle analyses of foundation sliding stability of gravity dams is outlined then applied to an idealized triangular dam and two actual gravity dams. The friction circle method is a useful tool for gravity dam foundation sliding stability assessments. Friction circle analyses are simple enough...
