Abstract

Forced vibration test result are presented for two large embankment dams. The results are compared with an approximately three dimensional finite element analysis. In addition a semi-empirical fundamental period expression is developed for use in the interpretation of the available natural period data. The period expression developed is based on the shear wedge solution for an inhomogeneous medium and takes the effect of the third dimension into account.

Dynamic Properties of Embankment Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

Forced vibration test result are presented for two large embankment dams. The results are compared with an approximately three dimensional finite element analysis. In addition a semi-empirical fundamental period expression is developed for use in the interpretation of the available natural period data. The period expression developed is based on the shear wedge solution for an inhomogeneous medium and takes the effect of the third dimension into account.
