The static and seismic analysis of Janneh arch-gravity dam (157 m) is carried out by considering a combination of self-weight, hydrostatic, uplift and seismic loads. Linear and nonlinear analyses are performed for both static and seismic cases. Nonlinear behavior is studied by means of joint elements in the contact between the rock foundation and the dam following a bilinear cohesive law. The hydrodynamic effects derived to seismic loads are also considered. Hydrodynamic Westergaard’s approach is applied in the pseudo-static analysis, and the Westergaard’s generalized added mass is used for time-history case.
