Dynamic Analysis of gravity Dams including FSI under seismic excitation


This numerical sample is not based on a laboratory sample. If you are interested in dynamic behavior of dams, it can be a suitable and affordable model for your studies. CAE file are provided to you by purchasing the product. You can edit and run Model using Abaqus 6.14.1 or later versions. for more detail please read the below description.


Analysis of gravity dams including FSI under seismic excitation using ABAQUS

The “Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. Modeling the behavior of concrete structures has always had certain complexities, especially when the effect of water is also to be investigated. The modeling technique for beams, columns and in general every concrete member has the same generalities and completely different details. Therefore, analysis of gravity Dams including FSI in Abaqus require accurate definition of material behavior (concrete and water), loading condition and mesh technique, etc.

This Product:

This product (Analysis of gravity dam including FSI under seismic excitation) is not based on a laboratory sample and it does not have tutorial video, but at the end of the analysis you will see the patterns of cracking completely similar to the pattern of the presented researches. Model evaluation shows that, the method which many researchers use to simulate the behavior of such structures. As you know, the Abaqus material library provided three methods to simulate concrete behavior;

1- Concrete smeared cracking.

2- Cracking model for concrete.

3- Concrete damaged plasticity.

All three methods have unique features which should choose by the user based on the problem conditions. In this model, we considered “Concrete damaged plasticity method” to simulate the behavior of concrete gravity dam. So that, mechanical behavior of concrete material is a continuum, plasticity-based and damage model.

The main two failure mechanisms are assumed for tensile cracking and compressive crushing of concrete dam and has been carefully applied through modeling prosses. After evaluating this product, you will be able to simulate any type of concrete beam and extract the contour of stresses, strains, forces and displacements.
