Abstract

Structural response of a dam-foundation rock- impounded water model under seismic and thermal loading L.E. Romera, S. Hernandez, J.A. Rodriguez E.T.S. Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos, University of La Coruna, La Coruna 15192, Spain ABSTRACT In this paper a comprehensive study of the existing Spanish dam of Bolarque is presented. The dam was composed of two different classes of concrete and also two choices of material characteristic of the rock foundation were considered. The seismic analysis was earned out taking in account the dam-foundation rock- impounded water interaction. Additionally, thermal loadings were included by using an equivalent structural model. Overall 128 structural analyses were carried out to complete consider the necessary combinations of materials, seismic and thermal loadings. Numerical results are presented showing the behaviour of the dam under the worst situations for empty and full reservoir. 1 . A BRIEF HISTORY OF BOLARQUE DAM The Bolarque dam wa
