Unformatted text preview: c. Assuming your answer for (b) represents the average pore water pressure across the base of the dam, calculate the resultant upward force acting on the dam (per m out of the page). Assuming γ conc = 24 kN/m 3 , approximate the downward force (weight) exerted by the concrete dam (per m of dam out of page). Is the dam is stable from uplift? 3. Complete Problem 2.5 in Craig...
