Abstract

A number of river valley projects for the development of water and power resources, particularly in the Northern and North Eastern part of India, lie on the foothills of Himalayas which is seismically active. In the developmental activity of dam building, aseismic design of dam is therefore recognized and adopted. The paper presents the current Indian practice in the aseismic design of embankment dams with illustrations from studies carried out on some recent dams.

Embankment Design in Seismic Areas — Indian Practice

St. Louis, Missouri

A number of river valley projects for the development of water and power resources, particularly in the Northern and North Eastern part of India, lie on the foothills of Himalayas which is seismically active. In the developmental activity of dam building, aseismic design of dam is therefore recognized and adopted. The paper presents the current Indian practice in the aseismic design of embankment dams with illustrations from studies carried out on some recent dams.
