Abstract:

The simplified procedure for earthquake analysis of concrete gravity dams developed earlier for nonoverflow monoliths is extended in this report to gated spillway monoliths. Standard data are presented for the vibration properties of such monoliths and for all parameters that are required in the analysis procedure. The use of the simplified analysis procedure and of a computer program that facilitates implementation of the procedure is illustrated by examples.
