Abstract

In order to design earthquake resistant dams and evaluate the safety of existing dams that will be exposed to future earthquakes, it is essential to have accurate and reliable analysis procedures to predict the stresses and deformations in dams subjected to earthquake ground motion. For a dam-water-foundation system, the earthquake response is significantly influenced by the interaction of the dam with the impounded water and with the underlying foundation region, thus increasing the requirements for the analysis procedure to be used, and complicating what would otherwise have been considered a routine finite element analysis of a concrete cross-section. In this paper Latyan concrete buttress dam subjected to different records including reservoir effects by finite element method using ABAQUS.
