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…
