Abstract

An analytical study of the pattern of variation in the pore pressures within an embankment during earthquake, based upon seismic analysis by the rigid body response method and by the elastic body response method using ICL 1901 A computer is presented herein. The pore pressure contours before and during an earthquake are presented for an upstream slope of Tapar dam situated in seismically active zone in West India.

Pore Pressure Analysis for an Earth Dam During Earthquake

St. Louis, Missouri

An analytical study of the pattern of variation in the pore pressures within an embankment during earthquake, based upon seismic analysis by the rigid body response method and by the elastic body response method using ICL 1901 A computer is presented herein. The pore pressure contours before and during an earthquake are presented for an upstream slope of Tapar dam situated in seismically active zone in West India.
