Abstract

In this article, an analytical model is presented for the simulation of the thermal behaviour of dams that are subjected to environmental thermal action during service. The method of solution adopted, as well as the evaluation of the different parameters, is described in detail. Also, the theoretical results that are predicted by the model are compared with experimental results obtained through the monitoring of temperature in several dams in Spain. The dams considered are currently in use, of different types and in distinct locations.
