Study of Stability against Up-Sliding of High Arch Dam
Aimed at stability against up-sliding that the dam engineers have concerned closely, in this paper combining two models of arch dam, the analysis of 3-D finite element method has been carried out about shear of contact face between foundation and high arch dam, we concluded probability of stability against up-sliding along contact face between foundation and high double curvature arch dam was little, but the problem of stability against up-sliding at high single curvature arch dam was existed, so we should study its stability against up-sliding.
