Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report is a part of a Corps-wide project to provide guidance for the use of finite element analyses. A continuation of the Phase 1a study dealing with a static finite element analysis of a gravity dam and Phase 1b study dealing with foundation-structure interaction, Phase II gives direction in performing a response-spectrum dynamic finite element analysis of a gravity dam. An example problem is presented to demonstrate how to verify the results for a simplified structure before moving to the analysis of the real structure. An analysis of a realistic gravity dam is then presented with results.
