Abstract : Because of the successful use of the finite element analysis procedure in determining the distribution of stresses in the cracked section of Norfolk Dam, an investigation was made to see if it would be feasible to make a finite element analysis of the stresses in Dworshak Dam, taking into account the actual construction program for the dam, the individual temperature histories of each lift of concrete, and the time dependent elastic and creep properties of the concrete.
