The Use of Nonlinear Analyses Tools for the Structural Design of Concrete Dams
Soysal, Berat Feyza; Arıcı, Yalın (2015-06-20)
Given the need to evaluate the older infrastructure for higher design hazards in order to ascertain the performance in multiple sigma events, the use of nonlinear tools for the prediction of the performance of concrete structures is becoming increasingly popular. Smeared crack models are the primary tools to simulate the performance of dams due to such properties as mesh independence and robust behavior, as well as being dependent on only a few parameters discernible by common laboratory tests. In contrast ...

The Use of 3D Modeling for the Prediction of the Seismic Demands on the Gravity Dams
Bybordıanı, Mılad; Arıcı, Yalın (null; 2017-02-01)
Seismic behavior of gravity dams has long been evaluated using a representative 2D monolith for the system. Formulated for the gravity dams built in wide-canyons, the assumption is nevertheless utilized extensively for almost all concrete dams due to the established procedures as well as the expected computational costs of a three dimensional model. However, a significant number of RCC dams, characterized as such systems, do not conform to the basic assumptions of these methods by violating the conditions o...
