Serial Information: Journal of the Power Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 2, Pg. 1-11

Document Type: Journal Paper


Mechanics of uplift force acting within concrete body is presented first by conceiving concrete as space frame structural body; thus idea of effective uplift area is explained; furthermore, as water percolates through space frame structural body, seepage force occurs; resultant of uplift and seepage forces is pore pressure force.
