To respond to these concerns, the Panel on Earthquake Engineering for Concrete Dams was appointed to serve under the NBC Committee on Earthquake Engineering. The mandate of the panel was to evaluate the present status of knowledge about the earthquake per- formance of concrete dams, including procedures for investigating the seis- mic safety of.

Earthquakes are large-scale disturbances caused by massive wave propagations that are triggered by tectonic plate convergence or divergence. Earthquake engineering is an interdisciplinary field that is concerned with the structural analysis and study of large constructions such as buildings or bridges with the objective of making such structures more earthquake . Additional Physical Format: Online version: Earthquake engineering for concrete dams. Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press, (OCoLC) Panel on Earthquake Engineering for Concrete Dams The hazard posed by large dams has long been known. This book evaluates contemporary knowledge about the earthquake performance of concrete dams, including procedures for investigating the seismic safety of such structures. Earthquake is defined as a sudden and rapid shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the Earth’s surface and it creates seismic waves, which can result in damages and failures on man-made structures constructed on the crust of earth [].Dams and large reservoirs constructed on the area with high seismicity, pose a high-risk potential for Author: Hasan Tosun.
