Abstract

In this study, dynamic response of rock-fill dams to asynchronous ground motion is investigated. The Keban Dam, constructed in Elaziğ, Turkey, is chosen as a numerical example. In the asynchronous dynamic analysis, wave velocities of 500 m/s, 1000 m/s, 2000 m/s and infinite are used for the travelling ground motion. Stresses are obtained for the wave velocities, and compared with each other. It is observed that the propagation velocity of the ground motion greatly influences the response of the rock-fill dam.
