Abstract : IN CONCRETE DAMS CONSTRUCTED BY THE Bureau of Reclamation, many strain meters are attached to reinforcement steel and penstock liners embedded in the concrete. Readings of these meters are taken frequently over a period of years. These field data are then reduced to give values of stress developed in the steel and liners. This involves a simple computation, but hundreds of meter readings must be reduced. The present program has been prepared to perform these computations. (Author)
