Abstract

Reclamation evaluates at least ten existing large concrete dams each year. The primary focus of these evaluations is to determine the dam’s ability to withstand a major earthquake or flooding conditions. The dam’s survival depends on the mechanical strength developed throughout the complex, discontinuous mass of the structure.
