- The objectives of the investigation are to develop an effective and computationally efficient analytical procedure for computing the earthquake response of concrete arch dams, and to investigate how this response is affected by dam-water interaction, foundation-rock flexibility, and the alluvium and sediments usually prevent at the reservoir boundary.
