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…

Shedding Light on the Effect of Uncertainties in the Seismic Fragility Analysis of Existing Concrete Dams

The seismic risk assessment of existing concrete gravity dams is of primary importance for our society because of the fundamental role of these infrastructures in the sustainability of a country. The

Determination of limit-states for near-fault seismic fragility assessment of concrete gravity dams

It was found that the defined LSs have the capability indeed to be used in probabilistic framework and the exceeding probability of the LSs curves has been developed at various intensity measures based on the tree EDPs.

Seismic performance assessment of high CFRDs based on fragility analysis

Due to a large number of high concrete face rockfill dams (CFRDs) being constructed, the seismic safety is crucially important and seismic performance assessment must be performed for such dams.

The seismic assessment of existing concrete gravity dams: FE model uncertainty quantification and reduction

Two Bayesian frameworks for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of existing concrete gravity dams are proposed and an innovative numerical algorithm is proposed to solve the well-known mode matching problem without using the concept of system mode shapes or objective functions.

Research and Application of a Seismic Damage Classification Method of Concrete Gravity Dams Using Displacement in the Crest

Concrete gravity dams are one of the most common water retention structures, some of which are located in seismically active regions. Determination of damage level after earthquakes plays an

Investigation into the effect of bed stiffness on seismic performance of concrete gravity dam under far- and near-field earthquakes

Today hydraulic reservoir structures are one of the most significant structures over the world and, on the other hand, have become of great importance because of current droughts, particularly in the

Study on seismic vulnerability of concrete dams based on improved IDA

In existing study of seismic vulnerability of concrete dams, the classification of seismic damage degrees was based on single index and the incremental step length in IDA analysis failed to consider

RELIABILITY–BASED DESIGN OPTIMIZATION OF CONCRETE GRAVITY DAMS USING SUBSET SIMULATION

The paper deals with the reliability–based design optimization (RBDO) of concrete gravity dams subjected to earthquake load using subset simulation. The optimization problem is formulated such that
