Structures has authored and reviewed numerous engineering manuals
for design and safety evalaution of hydraulic structures.
Army Corps of Engineers
Manual EM 1110-2-2400: Structural Design and Evaluation
of Outlet Works
This manual provides guidance for the planning and structural design
and analysis of intake structures and other outlet works.
Manual EM 1110-2-6050: Response Spectra and Seismic Analysis
of Hydraulic Structures
This manual describes the development and use of response spectra
for the seismic analysis of hydraulic structures. The manual provides
guidance regarding how earthquake ground motions are characterized
for design earthquakes and how they are then used in the process
of seismic structural analysis and design. This manual is intended
to be an introduction to the seismic analysis of concrete hydraulic
Engineer Manual EM 1110-2-6051: Time History Dynamic
Analysis of Concrete Hydraulic Structures
This manual describes procedures for the linear-elastic time-history
dynamic analysis and development of acceleration time-histories
for seismic design and evaluation of concrete hydraulic structures.
The manual provides guidance on the formulation and interpretation
of the linear-elastic time-history dynamic analyses and on the development
and application of earthquake input time-histories.
Engineer Manual EM 1110-2-6053: Earthquake Design and Evaluation
of Concrete Hydraulic Structures
This manual provides guidance for the seismic design and evaluation
of concrete hydraulic structures. It introduces procedures that show how to design or evaluate
a hydraulic structure to have a predictable performance for specified levels of seismic hazard.
Chapters 6 and 7 of Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-2201:
Engineering and Design, Arch Dam Design
This manual provides general information, design criteria and procedures,
static and dynamic analysis procedures, temperature studies, concrete
testing requirements, foundation investigation requirements, and
instrumentation information for the design of concrete arch dams.
Report ITL-93-1: Theoretical Manual for Analysis of Arch Dams
This manual is a companion to EM 1110-2-2201 and
provides a theoretical background for the linear structural analysis
of concrete arch dams. It describes analytical procedures employed
in the computer program GDAP
