Abstract:

This report presents recommendations for modifications to the present Corps of Engineers stability analysis for concrete gravity structures. These modifications are intended for use in conjunction with the current analysis procedures for a more accurate assessment of the factor of safety of existing structures. It is concluded from this study that the effects of wall friction and strain compatibility are significant when the foundation rock modulus is relatively low. Gravity structures, Strain compatibility, Stability, Wall friction.
