Stability analysis of dams

Displacements of load case high water
Plasticity of load case earthquake
Stationary fluid flow analysis
Pore water pressure of fully saturated masonry dam

To calculate stability analysis of dams, Dynardo uses world leading General Purpose FEM packages (ANSYS/LS-DYNA/FLAC) and has completed these codes with powerful material libraries for elastic-plastic analysis of rock, jointed rock, soil, masonry and concrete. 

The shown non-linear analysis with ANSYS includes dead loads, service loads, structure ground interaction, coupled hydro-thermal-mechanical effects due to fluid flow, thermal loading, uplift and reservoir water pressure or earthquake loading. 

The stability and survivability is calculated in non-linear load history analysis for all important load cases including safety factors.

Furthermore, the powerful material models allow effective analysis also for extreme load cases like load limit analysis, heavy earthquake or airplane crash analysis.
