Tenth Benchmark Workshop on Computational Aspects of Analysis & Design of Dams – Theme A

The problem statement shall consist of the static and seismic stability assessment of a three-dimensional
multi-facetted rock “wedge” of an arch dam abutment. Firstly, dam-rock interface forces shall be
evaluated from a finite element model and then, abutment stability assessments shall be performed using
conventional (Londe Method) and/or finite element techniques.
