Abstract [en]

In dam safety assessments, it must be shown that concrete dams are safe against sliding and overturning failure modes. This is typically performed with analytical calculations based on force equilibrium of a rigid body. In more complex cases, these analyses are time-consuming and have to be based on assumptions regarding the dam’s behaviour or simplifications. By using non-linear finite element analyses (FEA), more detailed and realistic analyses can be performed where it is possible to include cracks, degradation, material strength, dam-rock interaction etc. A method to perform these analyses is presented, based on the same safety concept as for the classical methods.
