Comparative predictions of the end of construction performance of a central core embankment dam located in southern Portugal are presented. The predictions are based on finite element analyses, one set being carried out at Swansea and the other at the Laboratorio Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC) in Lisbon. Except for collaboration over the interpretation of laboratory test results the work was independent. Different analytical models were used at the two centres: the ‘KG’ model at Swansea… CONTINUE READING
