Arrival direction effects of travelling waves on nonlinear seismic response of arch dams
Akkose, Mehmet;
The aim of this study is to investigate arrival direction effects of travelling waves on non-linear seismic response of arch dams. It is evident that the seismic waves may reach on the dam site from any direction. Therefore, this study considers the seismic waves arrive to the dam site with different angles, ${\theta}
