Galleries in gravity dam

GALLERIES IN GRAVITY DAMS Galleries have to be left in the gravity dams during their construction. The size of the galleries depends upon the purpose, they have to perform. The galleries may be aligned both along the axis and across the axis of the dam. They are provided at all the levels of the dam….

Profile of high masonry gravity dam

PROFILE OF HIGH MASONRY GRAVITY DAM Mr. G. Molesworth gave the following formulae for fixing. These formulae are applicable for masonry gravity dams only. $x= \sqrt{\frac{1.76y^{3}}{p_{a+1.06y}}}$ But value of x should not exceed y ρ at any cost $Z= \frac{y}{36.5p_{a}}$ where x = D/S offset from the vertical line also known as axis of the…
