Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The purpose of this investigation was to validate the accuracy and effectiveness of the temperature and thermal stress/strain calculation programs currently being used by the Corps of Engineers by comparing analytical results with measured data obtained from embedded gages in Dworshak Dam. History of construction, weather data, and available material properties of Dworshak Dam were used for computer program input. Based on the results of this investigation, it can be concluded that the temperature and thermal stress calculation programs currently being used by the Corps are acceptable. Recommendations for further improvement of these computer programs are presented.
