The concrete gravity dam is designed so that it is held in position by its own weight.
Question:
The concrete gravity dam is designed so that it is held in position by its own weight. Determine the minimum dimension x so that the factor of safety against overturning about point A of the dam is 2.The factor of safety is defined as the ratio of the stabilizing moment divided by the overturning moment. The densities of concrete and water are ?_{conc} = 2.40Mg/m^{3} and ?_{w?}= 1 Mg/m^{3}, respectively. Assume that the dam does not slide.
