Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The instrumentation program consisted of monitoring performance of the structure during and after the construction stage and during normal operation. Special instrumentation was concentrated at the gated dam pier, typical lock chamber monolith, and gate bay monoliths to evaluate the structure behavior such as bending moments, soil and uplift pressures, and structure deflections. In general, observed settlements were less than predicted settlements with observed base pressures along the base slab higher than predicted values. Deflections based on moment calculations and on strain data show good agreement, and moments calculated using uniform base pressure distribution were approximately equal to moments calculated based on strain data.
