Abstract

The response of earth dam with underground concrete cut-off wall during construction, at normal operation and under earthquake action has been evaluated and some interesting research' results such as seismic permanent displacement are obtained. A new nonlinear dynamic model of cohesionless soils, consisting of unclosed hysteresis loop, moving back bone curve and static loading curve, is presented. Shear stress ratio controlled cyclic triaxial tests and ultrasonic shear wave velocity tests have been performed to measure the parameters of the model. The shear resistance at sand/concrete interface has been studied by making tests in a torsional shear testing device.

Response of Earth Dam with Underground Concrete Cut-off Wall

St. Louis, Missouri

The response of earth dam with underground concrete cut-off wall during construction, at normal operation and under earthquake action has been evaluated and some interesting research' results such as seismic permanent displacement are obtained. A new nonlinear dynamic model of cohesionless soils, consisting of unclosed hysteresis loop, moving back bone curve and static loading curve, is presented. Shear stress ratio controlled cyclic triaxial tests and ultrasonic shear wave velocity tests have been performed to measure the parameters of the model. The shear resistance at sand/concrete interface has been studied by making tests in a torsional shear testing device.
