Quest Structures has authored and reviewed numerous engineering manuals for design and safety evalaution of hydraulic structures.


US Army Corps of Engineers


Engineer 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.

Engineer 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 structures.


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.

Technical 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
