Paper Title:
3D Numerical Simulation of Majiabian Concrete Gravity Dam
  Abstract

A new method that 3D numerical simulation combined with anti-cut stability analysis is employed to analyze the stability of Majiabian gravity dam, and the results of the analysis conform to the measured value. And this method can be used in analysis of congener gravity dam. When the results of 2D sliding stability analysis satisfy Code’s requirements, elastic material can be used in 3D numerical simulation. The results of water level sensitivity analysis and deformation modulus of its foundation sensitivity analysis indicates that this gravity dam is insensitive to water level; grouting method can be adopted to enhance its foundation. The results of abutment under tension stress analysis indicate that tension stress of abutment must be considered in high gravity dam design, and arch can be used for reducing the tension stress.
