Project Description

The structural integrity of a concrete arch dam and abutment wall exhibiting cracks and unforeseen deformations due to Alkali Aggregate reaction concrete growth had to be evaluated. The results of a computer-based simulation of the phenomenon of concrete growth due to Alkali Aggregate reaction were incorporated into a 3-D finite element analysis of the concrete dam and abutment wall in order to investigate the structural integrity of the dam.
