Intensity of Normal Stress Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Online buttress dam calculator to calculate intensity of normal stress on horizontal plane using normal stress formula.

The principal structural elements of a buttress dam are the water-supporting upstream face, or deck, and the buttresses.

Calculate Normal Stress on Horizontal Plane in Buttress Dam

Formula:

?x(max, min) = [N / A] [(MY) / I]

where,
?x = intensity of normal stress on horizontal plane
N = total vertical load on section (masonry + water)
A = sectional area of base
M = moment = (Ne)
e = eccentricity (distance from point of application to center of gravity of section)
Y = distance from center of gravity to most remote fiber
I = moment of inertia of horizontal section
