AbstractThis document describes a procedure to be followed to evaluate seismic hydrodynamic forces acting on 2D models of gravity dams. To meet objectives of this procedure a number of computer programs had to be developed together with a modification of the core program BEMC.2D based on the constant boundary element formulation. At the beginning of this chapter, the short description of the procedure is presented. The rest of this document covers user's guides to these programs together with a numerical example. Listings of them and references are also included.
