Unformatted text preview: (REMINDER: FOR FULL CREDIT, SHow ALGEBRAIc DERIVATION FIRST, THEN PLUG IN NUMBERS) 1. Water backs up behind a concrete dam. Leakage beneath the foundation gives the pressure distribution shown right. If the water depth on the left, h, is too large, the dam will topple about point A. a) Sketch a free body diagram of the dam. Provide all needed labels and define all quantities shown on the diagram. ‘6 b) Write and simplify the equation that expresses the static equilibrium of the dam in rotation about A in terms of the specific weights of water (y) and concrete (ye ), E , 11, hr, and H, the height of the dam EMA :O —y£_ii +mg Yw +542 32 —\/rzifi§,—\/r32fi?1 :0 :4 h Q H 1m- if?) _g(7{§l’il>)+3§g(b:%b+ l 3 SW 2.33/3 _ (521) (MM b)_(3£>(x(h-t,)% g) : 0 MORE SPACE AVAILABLE ON THE NEXT PAGE/PROBLEM CONTINUES ON THE NEXT PAGE... _— _— “4:92” If; - if; @191 wwmi: ’75 637179 g 02 3 - JFQM9:H.
