Stability analysis of dams

Displacements of load case high water
Plasticity of load case earthquake

Using ANSYS and multiPlas, Dynardo calculated the stability of dams in regard to E-DIN 19700. With Dynardo's multiPlas extensive material models for rock, soil, masonry and concrete coud be integrated. All interactions between foundation and structures were considered in 2 or 3-d models. The non-linear analysis included 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 serviceability were calculated in non-linear load history analyses for all important load cases including safety factors. Furthermore, the material models also allow an effective analysis for extreme load cases like load limit analysis, heavy earthquake or airplane crash analysis.
