Re:Earth Dams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The keystone paper for this subject is Makdisi and Seed's "Simplified Procedure
for Estimating Dam and Embankment Earthquake-Induced Deformations" published in
the ASCE Geotechnical Journal July 1978 (Vol. 104, GT7, pp. 849-867).  It is
also reproduced in Volume I of the H. Bolton Seed Selected Papers (BiTech, 1989,
a must for all geotechnical engineers).  Seed's analysis of San Fernando Dam is
also important reading (ASCE Geotechnical Journal July 1975).  ((It is true that
I have a UCB prejudice.))

Can anyone recommend a good reference on seismic analysis for earth dams?

Any leads would be appreciated.
