Seismic analysis of dam under different upstream water levels
Shashank Bhatnagar, A Kranthikumar and V A Sawant

    The present paper describes the results of numerical modeling of a dam founded on loose liquefiable deposit using PLAXIS-3D finite element software. Effect of a different dam water level on parameters like displacements, Excess Pore water pressures, Liquefaction potential and Accelerations is studied. El- Centro earthquake motion is applied as input earthquake motion. The results of this study show that different upstream dam water level greatly affects the displacements, excess pore pressure and displacement tendency of the underlying foundation soils and the dam.
Key Words
