dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present paper is to present actual calculation approaches and design aspects of inflatable dams. The analytical calculation of design relevant stresses in the membrane of inflatable dams is too vague. Therefore, finite element analyses are needed to get the stresses of the multi-ply composite material with cover layers of rubber. Because of the rubber layers the inflatable dams are sometimes called rubber dams. In the end of the actual investigations, there should be a design concept for inflatable dams accordant to the Eurocode-concept. Stress concentration factors, gained of finite element calculations, lead to the relevant stresses. Reduction factors for the different material behaviours are determined independent of numerous calculations.
