Abstract

An effective stress method using two-dimensional finite elements is presented for predicting the generation and dissipation of pore water pressure coupled with deformation in saturated sands under earthquake shaking. The method has been used to analyze the post-earthquake slide of upstream slope of Shimenling earth dam in Liaoning province during Haicheng earthquake on Feb. 4, 1975.

Dynamically Coupled Percolation and Deformation Analysis of Earth Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

An effective stress method using two-dimensional finite elements is presented for predicting the generation and dissipation of pore water pressure coupled with deformation in saturated sands under earthquake shaking. The method has been used to analyze the post-earthquake slide of upstream slope of Shimenling earth dam in Liaoning province during Haicheng earthquake on Feb. 4, 1975.
