Recent Achievements in Numerical Analysis of Concrete Dam, Challenges and Opportunities
Special Issue Information
Concrete dams are critical infrastructures that retain water for different consumption, such as water supply, flood control, irrigation, and electric power. The safe performance of concrete dams has induced the most significant involvement among the industrial as wel1 as the research communities. Among different solutions for evaluating the safety of the concrete dam, numerical analysis methods are one of the most practical solutions, if not the only method, for the overall calculation of concrete dam responses. Different studies develop numerous numerical procedures, considering different assumptions for dam-reservoir-foundation interaction effects, the constitutive model for concrete, the method of inserting seismic loads, and foundation properties. Despite these numerous prominent numerical solutions, researches in this area are ongoing. This issue will focus on recent achievements in the Numerical Analysis of concrete dams.
Aim and Scope
Through organizing this issue, new achievements by researchers in the Numerical Analysis of Concrete dam is to be demonstrated, focusing on the Numerical Method, Concrete Fracture Theories, and the relevant computational models for predicting seismic responses of concrete dams. Technical notes and research papers are welcome in this issue.
