Online Workshop - 24 PDHs
Bruce Brand’s “Structural Behavior of Dams” is a 4-day course on Dam Engineering. It is at the same time very theoretical and very practical. Theory is presented and then applied to real-world dam engineering situations.
Bruce originally developed the course for FERC engineers, but now is offering it to the dam engineering community. The target audience is experienced engineers - it would not be appropriate for novices. Classes are small; no more than 12 students.
Beam Theory with an emphasis on geometric non-linearities
Loads on Dams
Steady State Hydrodynamic
Surge Tank Example
Wave Radiating Boundaries
Slab and Buttress Topics
In addition to instruction, Bruce provides the following software:
2DSTAB Gravity Dam Analysis
TGRIB Tainter gate Analysis
VF2D 2 Dim. Non-Linear FEA
ARVAR 3 Dim. Non-linear FEA
DAMGEN Gravity Dam Mesh Generator
ARCHMKR Arch Dam Mesh Generator
