Abstract [en]

For design and assessment of concrete dams the standard procedure is to calculate safety factors and compare with some experience-based requirements. Probability-based design and assessment is still in its infancy, but in recent years an increasing number of papers has been presented in different contexts, e.g. ICOLD (2009), 3IWRDD (2011). This paper describes the background and main contents of a suggested “probabilistic model code for concrete dams” that gives recommendations on how to perform probabilistic analysis of concrete gravity and buttress structures. The purpose of the work is to educate dam owners, consultants and researchers in Sweden and to, in the long-term, implement probability-based guidelines and, if found appropriate, partial factors. In this paper, some of the most important points in the PMCD are described and an example is given on the use. The main conclusion from the work is that the code enables probabilistic analyses and also comparisons of dams. When several dams are analyzed using similar assumptions, for their specific context, the resulting comparison will become a useful tool to identify the necessary remedial works.
