Study on System of Gravity Dams Aided Design
Since there are some characteristics such as correlation, repeatability and integrity during the gravity dam design process, an automatic gravity dam assistant design system was established by adopting C sharp programming language, Visual Studio Development Suite as well as material mechanics and Technology of Parametric Drawing. The System includes four modules: 3D geological modeling, gravity dam structure modeling, dam sections analysis and database management. These modules realized different specialty cooperation and offered many-side analysis such as: 3D finite element analysis, stability analysis, stress analysis, section optimization and report export.
