Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 1, Pg. 75-110

Document Type: Journal Paper


General method for analysis assuming that arches are subjected to uniformly distributed radial load; determination of forces and moments at critical sections is generalized through set of simple nondimensional parameters; simple method of determining suitability of such arches in arch dam design is illustrated; new constant correlating crown deflection and thrust is presented.
