Paper Title:
Application of Fracture Mechanics to Arch Dam Analysis
  Abstract

The authors present a procedure for the analysis of the stability and propagation of cracks in arch dams based on linear elastic fracture mechanics. A finite element method was used to calculate the stress intensity factors(KⅠ, KⅡ and KⅢ) of crack in the concrete arch dam, and fracture analysis for arch dams was carried out, which based on the criterion of three-dimensional mixed mode fracture of concrete from the experiment. The analysis method can be applied to evaluate the safety of the arch dam and improve the design for arch dam.
