[United States. Bureau of Reclamation.;]. A gravity dam is a dam constructed from concrete or stone masonry and designed to hold back water by using the weight of the material alone to resist the horizontal pressure of water pushing against it.

Gravity dams are designed so that each section of the dam is stable and independent of any other dam section. Gravity dam 1.

ARCH DAM. Ice thrust may have to be taken into account in the design of gravity dams in cold climates. Estimates (Davis, ) of the thrust force vary according to anticipated ice thickness, and range from ×10 2 to ×10 5 N/m 2 of contact with the vertical face of the dam.

Seismic forces from earthquakes also have to be considered. Guidelines for Construction Cost Estimating for Dam Engineers and Owners was prepared by the USSD Committee on Construction and Rehabilitation.

The White Paper provides support for responsible cost estimating for new dams and dam rehabilitation projects. It has been written for engineers and owners engaged in the planning, design. Gravity dams are solid concrete structures that maintain their stability against design loads from the geometric shape, mass and strength of the concrete.

The purposes of dam construction may include navigation, flood damage reduction, hydroelectric power generation, fish and wildlife enhancement, water quality, water supply, and by: 2. Traditional Design Procedures: Gravity Dams 8. Traditional Analysis and Design 8.

doi: / In the design of gravity dams it was generally believed that stress levels were not a controlling factor, so the designer was. Earthquake Resistant Design of Concrete Gravity Dams. After demonstrating that traditional design procedures are unrealistic, a method for design of concrete gravity dams to remain essentially within the elastic range of behavior is presented.

All factors that are significant in the dynamic response of dams are considered and the capacity of concrete to support dynamic Cited by: Stability Analysis of Non -overflow Section of Concrete Gravity Dams.

A Longtan Dam case study. Master Thesis. Civil Engineering. Specialization in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering. Many concrete gravity dams have been in service for over 50 years, and over this period important advances in the methodologies for evaluation of natural phenomena hazards have caused the design.

Classification of dams: Dams are classified on several aspects, some of the important aspects are as follow: 1) Based on Hydraulic Design: Over flow dams (e.g.

concrete dams) Non over flow dams (e.g. embankment dams) 2) Based on Structural Design: Gravity dams Arch dams Buttress dams 3) Based on Usage of Dam: Storage dams Diversion dams 5/5(1).

Assumptions of maximum earthquake accelerations equal to one tenth of gravity are adequate for the design of important masonry dams without including additional allowances for resonance effects. Vertical as well as horizontal accelerations should be considered, especially in.
