Slope Safety of Earth Rockfill Cofferdam with Nonlinear Shear Strength
Based on numerical simulation of the seepage field of earth rockfill cofferdam using nonlinear Finite Element Method under the action of flood during construction period, the stability of the cofferdam slope with nonlinear shear strength is studied. The effectiveness and applicability of the method introduced in the paper is certified through computation in the study on the practical project. The paper provides an effective analysis method for the study on the stability of dam slope of earth rockfill cofferdam.
