Abstract [en]

At many of the Swedish hydropower plants, cracks have been observed in the concrete power station. Although the presence of cracks in these massive concrete structures does not pose an immediate threat to the structural safety, it of course affects its durability. Besides this, and perhaps as important in this application, the presence of cracks reduces the structural stiffness which affects the operation of the machinery.A case study is presented, where cracks have been found in the concrete support. Furthermore, analysis methods to evaluate the status of the concrete support; mainly through the use of finite element analysis are proposed.
