Earthquake Resistance of Earth and Rock-Fill Dams; Report 2. Analysis of Response of Rifly Gap Dam to Project Rulison Underground Nuclear Detonation,

Pagination or Media Count:
The motion of Rifle Gap Dam was measured in September 1969 during the Project RULISON underground nuclear explosion. The observed response was then compared with the response computed in a mathematical model. Observed and computed responses were similar. From the study it appears that the mathematical models used are applicalbe to the design and analysis of soil structures, at least for ground motion intensities comparable to those observed at Rifle Gap Dam.
