    However, the prediction of the performance of concrete dams during earthquakes is one of the most challenging and complex problems found in the field of structural dynamics because of the following factors: 1. Dams and the retained reservoirs are of complicated shapes, as dictated by the topography of the sites. I. BIBLIOGRAPHY ON THE PERFORMANCE OF CONCRETE DAMS DURING EARTHQUAKES Alarcon, P. N. {) 11 Dynamic Behaviour of Concrete Dams During Earthquakes,11 Individual Studies by Participants at the International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, Vol. 11, pp. File Size: 6MB.

    Seismic Analysis of Concrete Dams. Two days, Thursday and Friday, April 6 and 7 Seismic analyses are becoming more detailed, more dependent on advanced modeling techniques, and more frequently inform critical dam safety decisions. It had the following performance parameters during the Wenchuan event: a reservoir capacity of × 10 8 m 3, power capacity of MW, maximum dam height of m and crest length of m. The water elevation during the Wenchuan 5–12 earthquake was m and the Wenchuan-affected intensity was VIII. The damage details are: •Author: Chuhan Zhang.

    Dams and Earthquakes deals with the association of earthquakes and large artificial lakes, particularly on the part that pore pressure plays in inducing earthquakes. The book also contains methods for recording seismic activity, before, during, and after the filling of reservoir dams through the installation of a network of portable by: During the Santa Barbara Earthquake of , the Sheffield Dam in California failed due to liquefaction apparently in the area just below the dam embankment containing silty sand. Little damage and no loss of life resulted. The earthquake had a magnitude of and the dam was constructed in (Bonilla ).

In Octoberthe U.S. Society on Dams published Volume II of Observed Performance of Dams During Earthquakes. It is concluded that (1)Hydraulic fill dams on stable foundations can safely withstand accelerations up to about g from Magnitude earthquakes; (2)virtually any well-built dam can withstand moderately strong shaking up to about g or more with no detrimental effects; (3)dams built of clay soils seem to be able to withstand extremely strong shaking from large magnitude earthquakes without Cited by: Observed Performance of Dams During Earthquakes Volume III.

Dams and Earthquakes deals with the association of earthquakes and large artificial lakes, particularly on the part that pore pressure plays in inducing earthquakes.

The book also contains methods for recording seismic activity, before, during, and after the filling of reservoir dams through the installation of a network of portable seismographs. OBSERVED PERFORMANCE OFDAMS DURING EARTHQUAKES. (Volume II) In Julythe U.S. Committee on Large Dams published a report titled “Observed Performance of Dams During Earthquakes.” Sinceseveral earthquakes, including three major events, have affected an appreciable number of existing dams.

In earthquake-resistant design, this requires that design engineers visit earthquake-stricken regions and observe at first hand the performance of dams in relation to the methods used for their design. Or at the very least, take careful notes of the performance data during earthquakes presented in the technical literature.

In a paper prepared for the World Commission on Dams, Dr. P Jauhari wrote the following about this phenomenon, known as Reservoir-Induced Seismicity (RIS): "The most widely accepted explanation of how dams cause earthquakes is related to the extra water pressure created in the micro-cracks and fissures in the ground under and near a reservoir.

performance of an embankment during an earthquake: 1) Section geometry (Upstream and downstream slopes), 2) Construction method and compaction procedure, 3) Type of embankment and foundation material.

Thus the data available on the 33 dams considered should be examined. Observed Performance of Dams During Earthquakes The USSD Committee on Earthquakes has published three reports on this topic since Volume I includes general observations on the performance of embankment and concrete dams, along with 11 case histories and a table with a comprehensive listing of dams affected by earthquakes.

state that earthquake safety of dams is an important phenomenon in dam engineering and requires more comprehensive seismic studies for understanding the seismic behavior of dams subjected to severe earthquakes.

It is a well-known phenomenon that earthquakes can Author: Hasan Tosun. The second important earthquake that affected the dam seems to have happened in However, no record of this seismic event is available.

The third seismic event that hit the dam causing substantial settlements occurred on Octo atlocal Size: 1MB. The dam’s good performance is ascribed to the low susceptibility of the foundation materials to liquefaction.

The paper describes the observed performance of the dam during the earthquake, presents analyses of the dam’s seismic response, and discusses implications of the observed behavior for practice. ”Observed Performance of Dams during Earthquakes Vol.Ⅱ”().

“Chapter 4” was written using data sets from several technical papers about the10 major earthquakes occurred from to in Japan - Progress of analysis of seismic data shown in the report published in ICOLD Europe Club, [See RM-2]. Cracking due to embankment seismic deformation is one of the most hazardous conse-quences of earthquakes on embankment dams.

Cracking is commonly observed at the crest of dams and often develops. Observed dam performance. A brief summary of the performance of the six dams examined in this study is provided in the following subsections. For a more detailed account of the post-earthquake damage survey at dam sites reference may be made to the EERI () Reconnaissance Report.

Chang DamCited by:. The evolution of damage in the concrete dam at six different times during the earthquake is illustrated in Figure –6, Figure –7, and Figure –8.

Times = sec, = sec, and = sec correspond to the first three large excursions of the crest in the upstream direction, as shown in Figure –5.1Japan Dam Engineering Center, IkenohataNissyoku Building, Taito, Tokyo, Japan E-mail: [email protected] Abstract The paper describes briefly the performance of dams during recent earthquakes in Japan.

First the inspection of dams after the earthquake is introduced and secondly strong motions at dams are discussed. Introduction.The performance of dams and hydropower structures during the Wenchuan Earthquake is reviewed.
