Study on Structure Simulation Analysis of Concrete Single Curvature Arch Dam
Arch dam is a water retaining structure which has beautiful bodily form and reasonable structure form. In recent years, arch dam has been widely used. This paper adopts finite element method to carry out three-dimensional finite element simulation analysis for Xiuwen hydropower station, research variation law of the dam’s stress and displace in operational process. Research results show that, single curvature arch dam of Xiuwen hydropower station have reasonable structure, good mechanical properties, every index meets the requirements for design.
