Pressure Relief
When the two basins making up a 90 acre reservoir in New York needed to be emptied and cleaned, engineers decided to use the 2,750 ft (840 m) long concrete wall dividing them as a dam....

The Most Likely Groundwater Flux Through the Unsaturated Tuff Matrix at USW H-1
Using a probabilistic inverse method, an estimate is made of the groundwater flux through the unsaturated tuff matrix at drill hole USW H-1 in Yucca Mountain. The most likely flux is found...

Regional Stress Field Due to Water-Filling at Sanxia Dam
This paper uses the observed stress values to simulate the tectonic stress field in the reservoir. Based on the increment analysis method. we discuss the effects and variations of the...

Structural Integrity of Fontana Emergency Spillway

Estimating Damage and its Influence on Fracture Toughness
To estimate damage in a quantitative manner, a technique used whereby six values of linear strain are measured on a material element as a function of hydrostatic pressure. The high precision...

A Semi-Implicit Finite Difference Model for Three-Dimensional Tidal Circulation
A semi-implicit finite difference formulation for the numerical solution of three-dimensional tidal circulation is presented. The governing equations are the three-dimensional Reynolds...

Healing or Negative Damage in Concrete
The deformation of concrete may be attributed to damage or the evolution of microcracks and to mechanical healing or the closing of microcracks. For damage, dissipation is positive but...

Concrete Gravity Dam Cracking Analysis Methodology
This paper describes a methodology for the prediction and evaluation of cracking behavior in concrete gravity dam's for use in periodic safety investigations as outlined in...
