October 4-6 2022
Eligible for 24 PDHs
Part of the 2022 Fall Workshop Series taking place in person in Denver, CO, Bruce Brand’s “Structural Behavior of Dams” is a 3-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.
Classes are small; no more than 12 students.
Target Audience: Experienced engineers, this workshop will not be appropriate for novices.
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 Taintergate Analysis
VF2D 2 Dim. Non-Linear FEA
ARVAR 3 Dim. Non-linear FEA
DAMGEN Gravity Dam Mesh Generator
ARCHMKR Arch Dam Mesh Generator
