Abstract:

This report is a reevaluation of the stability of the existing Onondaga Dam which is located near the city of Syracuse, NY. This earth and rockfill dam provides flood protection for the city of Syracuse which is downstream of the dam. This evaluation includes a seismic evaluation and a stability analysis based upon current Corps criteria. The main report contains the local and regional geology at the project site and summarizes the results of the stability analysis. Appendix A contains pertinent data about Onondaga Dam. Appendix B contains the rationale for the selected soil parameters used in the stability analysis. Appendix C contains hand calculations of the critical slip surfaces. Appendix D contains the computer input files and sample output for the slip circle analysis. Appendix E contains the wave runup sample analysis for the storage pool. Appendix F contains the slope protection calculations. Attachment No. 1 is the Concrete Spillway Stability analysis and Attachment No. 2 AD-A169 722 is the seismic evaluation. Keywords Engineering geology Earth dam, Flood control dam Dam failure Dam stability Seepage Slope protection Periodic inspection.
