We regret to inform that the EWG 2018 Dams & Earthquakes Symposium will be postponed to 2019. This decision was agreed with the EWG, given the proximity of a meeting on the same theme organized within the framework of the 2018 ICOLD Congress in Vienna.
We appreciate the contributions already received. More information on the 2019 symposium will be sent early next year.
This international symposium is the third annual meeting of the ICOLD European Club Working Group ”Dams and Earthquakes”, following the very successful events in St.Malo and Rome. The effective application of the demanding regulations for the seismic safety of dams requires advanced and robust models and methods of analysis. There are many outstanding issues, namely those related to the definition of seismic hazard, the dynamic behaviour of materials and structures, or the numerical techniques, which need to be tested and validated. In this meeting, experts are invited to discuss all these issues. The deliverables of the symposium will be fundamental packages of qualification of seismic analyses: case studies of comparison of model results with experimental data, measurements of dam response under seismic events or dynamic monitoring
