Research on the Conception, Mechanism and Design Method of Steel Structure Dam
Steel structure dam, as a newborn dam type in hydropower engineering field, is proposed in this paper. The conception, operating mechanism, bar concection and the design and calculation methods are introduced. The characteristics of the steel braced frame that overall force and stability are fully utilized, and also the steel properties, such as high strength, high tenacity and high wearing. As a new technique and method, it opens up a new way for the application of rich steel resources in the hydropower engineering, which shows a good development prospects.
