Webinar - Seismic Assessment of Concrete Gravity & Concrete Faced Rockfill Dams
Concrete faced rockfill dams (CFRD) and roller-compacted concrete (RCC) gravity dams are the primary choices for dam construction due to the ease and speed of construction. In this presentation, the seismic assessment of both types of dams is going to be investigated focusing on the critical issues pertaining to the safety of each structure. Crack width prediction using smeared cracking models and embedded reinforcements are shown for CFRDs coupled with the advanced modelling of the rockfill constitutive relations. Critical issues on the investigation of RCC dams are shown with extensive validation of modelling capabilities using laboratory experiments.
