Abstract

This paper studies the stability of the roller compacted concrete (RCC) dam of Lom Pangar Project with respect to the sliding, overturning, shearing and seismic forces which exist at the bottom of the river at different times and tries to obtain a safety coefficient. The calculation notes on the stability of the dam have been carried out on 4 block models from different sections of the dam with the aid of the STABCON software developed by COYNE et BELLIER [1]. The stability of the supporting walls of the embankment near the dam was equally verified
