Abstract

The author has analyzed the seismic acceleration response and the earthquake induced residual deformation of rockfill dams and it found that they have been affected by earthquake property including base acceleration and duration but also slope gradient and embankment method and so on. This study will clarify the effect of embankment method basing on the analysis of completed year, embankment method, long-term settlement after construction and embanked density of rock material.
