Abstract

An existing 30 feet high debris basin embankment has been found to be severely cracked longitudinally. Few investigations or analysis of longitudinal cracking are reported. This paper presents the results of a finite element analysis using in situ properties of the soils and gives recommendations for future use of the FEM for cracking studies at existing dams.

Cracking Studies at Sand H Basin by the Finite Element Method

An existing 30 feet high debris basin embankment has been found to be severely cracked longitudinally. Few investigations or analysis of longitudinal cracking are reported. This paper presents the results of a finite element analysis using in situ properties of the soils and gives recommendations for future use of the FEM for cracking studies at existing dams.
