The Three-Dimensional Stability AnalysisDesign Program 3DSAD has been developed under the Computer-Aided Structural Engineering CASE project for the analysis and design of hydraulic structures with respect to overturning, sliding, and maximum bearing. Mr. Fred Tracy, Automation Technology Center, WES, is the principal author of this program. The program has two modes of operation 1 general structural capability and 2 specific structure types. The general modules allow the user to create and interactively plot the geometry and loads of the structure, obtain volume, weights, centroids, forces, and moments for these, and then do an analysis to determine if the base pressures, area of base in compression, sliding, and maximum bearing are at acceptable values. A Free-Body Module also exists to clip the geometry and loads to determine a new problem and make the subsequent analysis.
