Ëuestion # 02 : A gravity dam has the following

dimensions:

Height of dam = 100 m

£ree board = 1 m

Slope of upstream face = 0.15 : 1

Taking Į = 0.1

Determine

(i) hydrodynamic earthquake pressure and

(ii) its moment at joint situated 50 m below

maximum water surface.

SO´UTION:

If ø is the angle that upstream slope makes

with the vertical, we have

ø = tan-¹ (0.15/1) = 8.5º

Hence ș = 90º - ø = 81.5º

Cm = 0.735 × ș / 90º

= 0.735 × ( 81.5º / 90º )

= 0.666

Cm = maximum value of pressure coefficient

for a given slope

Here h = 100 m and y = 50 m

Cv = Cm/2 [y/h(2-

[y/h(2-y/h) + {y/h(2-

{y/h(2-h/y) }½]

}½]

= 0.666/2 [0.5(2-

[0.5(2-0.5)+ {0.5(2-

{0.5(2-0.5)}½]

= 0.538

Cv = pressure coefficient

below the maximum water level is given as

pev = Cv × Į × w × h

= 0.538 × 0.1 × 1000 × 100

= 5380 kg/cm²

:. Į = acceleration coefficient

Pey = 0.726 × pev × y

=0.726 × 5380 × 50

The End

Ëuestion # 03 : Considering earthquake forces,

in addition to the hydrostatic pressure and

uplift pressure, determine the base width of the

elementary profile of gravity dam so that

resultant passes through the outer third points.

The various forces acting on the dam are shown

in figure.

2. £orce due to vertical acceleration of

earthquake

3. £orce due to uplift = = 1/2 b h w

[(1-Į)ȡ

Į)ȡ--1]

Where w = unit weight of water,

ȡ = specific weight of concrete and

Į = coefficient of earthquake acceleration.

1. £orce due to water pressure P = ½ w h²

2. £orce due to hydrodynamic pressure of

water at base:

Cm= 0.735

Pe = Cm Į w h = 0.735 Įwh

Pe = 0.725 pe.h

Me = 0.299 pe.h² = 0.299 * 0.735 Į w h

= 0.2205 Į w h .

3. INERTIA £ORCE ( horizontal) = ĮW = ½ Į b h w

p

The resultant of all forces has to pass through the outer

third point M2. Moment of all these forces at this

point must be zero.

b²[ ( 1 - Į )p-

)p-1 ] - bh²wĮp/6 - wh²/6 [ 1 +Į (1.323) ] =

0

b = h( )

it is required expression.

Putting Į= 0 when no earthquake acts, the value of b

reduces to
