Abstract:
Records developments in arch dam design and con- struction with special reference to constant angle arch dam design. Actual cost data have been grven for various structures - covering all kinds of locations as a guide for estimating the cost of new work. When desiqninq an arch dam, the simole arch formulas (unit water pressure X length of upstream radius -unit stress X thickness) is used to obtain a preliminary section. The bending moments and resultin stresses are calculated by Cain’s formulas. Design tab es, l equa- tions, procedures, computations and drawings from various dams are included.
