Dynamic Behaviour of Arch Dams
Using a rare event as the maximum possible earthquake because the location and magnitude of potential earthquakes are uncertain.
Using upper-bound values for the peak ground acceleration expected at the site because of uncertainties in attenuation laws.
Using upper bound values for the design response spectrum because of the variation in such calculated spectra for the same peak value of ground acceleration and/or intensity.
