Abstract

A computer code for estimation of displacement of sliding surfaces during dynamic loading is discussed. The procedure allows selective incorporation of the effects of horizontal and vertical inertial forces, excess pore pressure development, hydrodynamic forces, shear strength reduction, and dilation. The relative effect of these parameters on the computed displacements can be readily determined for alternative design layouts or material behavior assumptions.

Estimation of Displacements of Rockfill Dams Due to Seismic Shaking

St. Louis, Missouri

A computer code for estimation of displacement of sliding surfaces during dynamic loading is discussed. The procedure allows selective incorporation of the effects of horizontal and vertical inertial forces, excess pore pressure development, hydrodynamic forces, shear strength reduction, and dilation. The relative effect of these parameters on the computed displacements can be readily determined for alternative design layouts or material behavior assumptions.
