Stability Analysis of Concrete Structures by US Army Corps of engineers

This circular transmits criteria for stability analysis of concrete gravity structures. Stability refers to resistance to sliding and floatation, limits on the eccentricity ofthe resultant of the applied loads, and limits on the bearing capacity of the foundation materials. This criteria applies to all types of structures founded on rock or soil, such as: dams, outlet works, navigation locks, floodwalls, and pumping stations. This draft manual is not applicable to piles or caissons, or to structures founded on these elements.
