Research overview:
Nukui dam is an arch concrete dam of the bank height 155m. This study investigates the safety of the structure of the Nukui dam, by the request of Chugoku district construction office. In the 1999 fiscal year, by using the actual earthquake wave record, time sequence dynamic response analysis was studied, and the stability of the dam against the earthquake of the scale of Hyogo Prefecture southern earthquake was investigated. Result confirmed that through the investigation of plural actual earthquake waves, for the highly statically indeterminate structure like an arch dam, even if big tensile strength occurred, by the stress re-distribution high safety could be maintained.
