Seismic Thresholds for Embankment Dams & Their Return Periods
90-Minute Webinar, 9:00 - 10:30 am MST
Eligible for 1.5 PDHs
The webinar will describe the process of developing seismic thresholds for 50 selected embankment/rockfill dams in the Western U.S. for post-earthquake notification and response. This work was extrapolated to approximate the return period of the permanent displacement failure for each dam. Seismic hazard curves for dams in low and high seismicity areas will be compared to evaluate whether a ‘levelized’ return period, e.g. 10,000 years, would provide the desired level of consistency and conservatism when evaluating ground motions for dam safety.
