3D Dynamic Analysis of a 270m Concrete Faced Rockfill Dam
3D finite element mesh for a 270m high CFRD was generated with advanced grid discretion technology. Adopting EI-Centro seismic wave with maximum horizontal acceleration 0.277g, dynamic response of this 270m high concrete faced rockfill dam was obtained by equivalent linearization method. Using residual strain model, the permanent deformation of the dam was obtained. Calculation results showed that the maximum acceleration and displacement of dam body, dynamic stress of face slab and deformation of joints are all within normal range. Therefore, the safety of dam would be guaranteed when it is subjected to 7 degree earthquake.
