Calculation of dam buttresses with an active joint
The proposed method of calculating buttresses for the effect of forces in an active joint gives a sufficiently good agreement with experiment.
Compressive stresses arise in the active joint on the upstream face of the buttress from the effect of the force.
When Eb=E0 the base noticeably influences the distribution of streses only in the lower part of the buttress with a height 0.25 H.
