Dynamic response of concrete-faced rockfill dams in rectangular canyons
An analytical closed-form solution has been developed for steady-state lateral response of concrete-face rockfill dams built in rectangular canyons. The canyon is assumed to be rigid, while the dam is idealized as a three-dimensional linearly-hysteretic elastic body deforming in shear and bending. Both free and base induced oscillations are studied ...
