Dam with cutoff at toe


The self-weight of the dam and thrust from water behind dam are unchanged from above. Integrating the pressure diagram to obtain the characteristic uplift on the dam with a cutoff at its heel, we get: kNo

Taking moments about the toe, the characteristic overturning moment due to kNm uplift is then: Mu Gk = n8.8-

Effects of actions

The design destabilizing moment about the toe is:
