Vertical displacements of engineering structures
Roman Shults
The results of this study confirm that for complex deformation processes, simple linear and exponential models are ineffective. Further, to improve the quality of prediction models, it is recommended to conduct in-depth statistical analysis of measured vertical displacements in order to avoid blunders and systematic errors...


Auscultation by GPS of rockfill dam
The paper aims to analyze the behavior of rockfill dams using the ANSYS computer code; an application was made on Altinkaya Dam in Turkey. This analysis has verified the stability of the Altinkaya Dam using GPS survey measurements over a period of 2 years at four epochs...
