Paper Title:
Dynamic Responses of Arch Dams Considering Different Reservoir Models
  Abstract

In this paper, the dynamic responses of an arch dam in the case of normal water level and operating low water level were simulated by using additional mass model and incompressible finite element model for reservoir respectively. The results showed that the reservoir models have a great impact on dynamic response of arch dams. The maximum principle tensile stress using incompressible finite element model of fluid is less than that using additional mass model. With the depth of the reservoir water increasing, the hydrodynamic pressure acting ton the dam surface caused by earthquake force increased and the dynamic responses of dam also increased.
