Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of the stability against sliding of a gravity dam built on a layered rock formation. During the design of this dam, detailed studies of the dam foundation were carried out from a viewpoint of rock mechanics, including laboratory and in-situ tests of the mechanical properties of rocks, calculations by the theory of limit equilibrium and FEM, as well as model tests. Based on these studies, the dam type was selected.

The Successful Construction of a High Gravity Dam on Complex Rock Formation

This paper presents an analysis of the stability against sliding of a gravity dam built on a layered rock formation. During the design of this dam, detailed studies of the dam foundation were carried out from a viewpoint of rock mechanics, including laboratory and in-situ tests of the mechanical properties of rocks, calculations by the theory of limit equilibrium and FEM, as well as model tests. Based on these studies, the dam type was selected.
