Abstract

In this study, stochastic seismic response of a rock-fill dam is investigated by finite element method. The Keban dam constructed in Elazig, Turkey is chosen as a numerical example. The interaction of the rock-fill dam with the reservoir is neglected, but not the foundation rock. The properties of the dam materials were taken from the dam project and assumed to be linearly elastic, homogenous and isotropic in the analysis.
