Throughout the world there are numerous concrete gravity dam has been made in areas of very high seismicity with least attention to seismic actions. Dam safety during and after an earthquake, is the objective of the present study. The failure of a dam in a seismic excitation has dramatic consequences in terms of loss of human lives and financial losses. In the present work, an analytical fragility analysis was performed in order to characterize the seismic vulnerability of concrete gravity dams… Expand
