Abstract

The response of an idealized triangular concrete gravity dam is studied due to horizontal and vertical ground motions for both fully reflective and absorptive reservoir bottom conditions. For each combination, in this paper different orders of Givoli-Neta (G-N) high-order truncation condition are aimed to be evaluated from accuracy point of view by comparing the results against corresponding exact solutions which relies on utilizing a two-dimensional fluid hyper-element.Design/methodology/approachIn present study, the dynamic analysis of concrete gravity dam-reservoir systems is formulated by Finite Element (FE)-(FE-TE) approach. In this technique, dam and reservoir are discretized by plane solid and fluid finite elements. Moreover, the G-N high-order condition imposed at the reservoir truncation boundary. This task is formulated by employing a truncation element at that boundary. It is emphasized that reservoir far-field is excluded from the discretized model.FindingsIt was observed that trend in gaining accuracy with increase in the order of G-N condition were basically the same for both horizontal and vertical ground motions under full reflective reservoir bottom condition.
