Analysis of Stress and Displacement of Taham Earth Dam


This paper explores the stability and displacements of earth dam during construction and impounding using experimental instrument and simulated data in Taham earth dam, Iran. Data were collected using experiment as instrument and then these data were simulated applying FLAC, PLAXIS and GeoStudio software. The simulation results were compared to experimental instrument data as reference data, to find out the accuracy of each software output. The comparisons results indicated that the output of FLAC were similar to experimental instrument data, thus FLAC can be applied for evaluating stability and settlement analysis of earth dam in that it can provide reliable results.
