dc.descriptionAbstract: This study is a continuation of an ongoing project by the Computer-Aided Structural Engineering (CASE) Committee on finite element analysis. This method of analysis, though in use for many years, is becoming more widely acclaimed as a viable method of solution available to engineers for structural analyses. Phase 1B of this study, discussed herein, describes the use of foundations in finite element modeling using a typical Corps structure, a gravity dam. Included in the report are discussions of the various types of foundation models which can be used in a finite element analysis, the size of the foundation finite element model, the effect of the foundation size used in the analysis on stresses in the structure, and the effect of foundation stiffness on the stresses in the structure.-
