Abstract

The method of seismic safety analysis for earth dam was examined by using actual performances of earth dams during the Chi-Chi Earthquake. Results of analysis under design earthquakes were also collected and compared with the performance records of earth dams. From the results of these studies, it appears that the Seed-Lee-Idriss approach can provide reasonable predictions on the dynamic responses and post-earthquake performance of well-compacted earth dam.

Seismic Safety Analysis of Earth Dam — Case History Studies
