A dam is a large concrete or earthen barrier built across a river or other waterway to create a reservoir for storing water. Dams are critical infrastructure for providing water for irrigation, drinking, and hydroelectric power generation. However, they are also susceptible to damage from natural disasters and human-made threats, such as earthquakes, landslides, and terrorist attacks. Abaqus can predict the behavior of dams under different loading conditions, including earthquakes, floods, and explosions. It also can model the interaction between the dam, water, and soil, making it a comprehensive and powerful tool for dam engineering. In this package, you will learn how to model dams in different conditions, such as dam simulation subjected to earthquakes in interaction with water and soil and dam simulation subjected to an underwater explosion.
