Paper Title:
Analysis of Weak Stress Aging in Earth Dam
  Abstract

The earth dam type is widely used in the dam engineering. According to the investigation, the earth dam would suffer problems after running 100 to 200 years in good filling quality. However, in China, for many reasons, it would only need 30 to 40 years when problems occur. This essay study the problems about weak stress of earth dam by the site investigations, theoretic analysis and finite element analysis and put forward the theory of earth dam aging induced by stress weakening.
