A concrete dam has a cross-section as given in the figure below. Check the stability of the dam when it is full with earthquake effect given that: Specific weight of

the concrete is 24 kN/m³, specific weight of water is 9.8kN/m³, area reduction factor is 0.60, earthquake coefficient is 0.10, sliding factor is 0.80, strength of the rock foundation is 2.0 MPa and concrete shear resistance is 1.5 MPa.
