Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 6, Pg. 31-46

Document Type: Journal Paper


For massive structures of gravity dams, dead load stresses form most important fraction of total stress in body; experimental methods to determine dead load stresses in structural models are reviewed: new experimental technique termed method of integration is described; method can be used to study alternative construction procedures to result in desired pattern of dead-load stress.
