Analysis of Concrete Arch Dams






The purpose of this course is to provide a brief introduction into the science of concrete arch dams.  The review will touch on design methods used in the past, but primarily focus on the methods used in the current state of the practice.  A historical review of construction techniques will be discussed, and how that relates to evaluations and the physical behavior of the structures.  The basic loads and loading conditions used for analysis will be explained, as well of techniques that can be used to validate analysis models.

6 takeaways attendees can expect from this webinar:

  • Construction Techniques and influence on structural behavior
  • Temperature loads
  • Potential Failure Modes specific to arch dams
  • Static Analysis for usual (normal) and unusual (flood) loading conditions
  • Rock Block Stability
  • Introduction to dynamic analysis
