15. Boulder Meeting USSD Earthquakes Committee Mission : -To identify seismic design needs for dams and to study, research or assemble updated information and disseminate to those responsible for dam design and operation. -To work cooperatively with the ICOLD Committee on Seismic Aspects of Dam Design to develop reports and guidelines for world-wide distribution.

21. Boulder Meeting Observed Earthquake Performance of Dams Historically very few dams have been damaged by Earthquakes. Only about a dozen dams are known to have failed completely primarily tailings or hydraulic fill dams. Only about a half dozen other embankment or concrete gravity dams of significant size have been damaged.

22. Boulder Meeting Observed EQ Performance Of Embankment Dams Modern well-built embankment dams have performed well. Compacted clay dams have performed well. Rockfill and concrete-face rockfill dams have performed well. Insufficiently compacted sand or silt dams and tailings and hydraulic fill dams have performed poorly.

23. Boulder Meeting Observed EQ Performance Of Concrete Dams Concrete arch dams have performed extremely well. Concrete gravity and buttress dams have performed well. Shih-Kang Dam experience confirmed that concrete dams cannot be designed to accommodate fault rupture.

24. Boulder Meeting Earthquake Design Of Appurtenant Structures To Dams Earthquake Input Load Combinations Spillways Water Conduits, Gates and Valves Pipelines and Penstocks Tunnels Gates and Valves Seismic Qualification Intake/Outlet Towers Navigation Locks and Structures
