Two dimensional Modal behaviour of an Arch dam

Author : Anjali Baby 1 Glynez Joseph 2

Date of Publication :18th July 2019

Abstract: Reservoir and foundation affect the dynamic characteristics especially modal frequencies and consequently the dynamic response of arch dams. A study is performed in this paper to view the effect of reservoir presence, foundation and fluid-dam interfaces modelling on modal behavior of arch dam using ANSYS. To represent water reservoir, two methods such as added masses approach and finite element method are adopted here
