Hydro Dam Analysis

Analysis of Dams is one of the specialities of DIANA for its extensive library of materials models and analysis functionalities that are suited for this purpose, eg. phased (staged) construction, soil-structure and fluid-structure interaction.

A dam is a complex structure whose analysis requires the following element features:

  • wide range of analysis functionality - ranging from modelling construction phases to earthquake analysis and coupled phenomena
  • ability to model nonlinear material behaviour and time, or ambient, dependent material behaviour
  • opportunity to model interaction of the reservoir and of the foundation with the dam body

DIANA offer possibility to do all of this in an automated sequence, without the user needing to manually convert results from an analysis into input for the subsequent analysis
