Abstract

The monitoring of displacement is one of major measures to ensure the safety of an arch dam. And the back-analysis is a key link in the safety evaluation. This paper presents a case history of monitoring and back-analysis of displacement in Dongjiang Arch Dam, China. The elasticity modulus of dam foundation were determined by back-analysis of displacement for lower water level in the reservoir. The prediction of displacement of dam was compared with the results of monitoring. The suggested procedure of 3D finite element computation coupling solid and temperature stresses can be used for other types of rock engineering.

Monitoring and Back-Analysis in Dongjian Arch Dam

St. Louis, Missouri

The monitoring of displacement is one of major measures to ensure the safety of an arch dam. And the back-analysis is a key link in the safety evaluation. This paper presents a case history of monitoring and back-analysis of displacement in Dongjiang Arch Dam, China. The elasticity modulus of dam foundation were determined by back-analysis of displacement for lower water level in the reservoir. The prediction of displacement of dam was compared with the results of monitoring. The suggested procedure of 3D finite element computation coupling solid and temperature stresses can be used for other types of rock engineering.
