Concrete Dam

Structural analysis taking into account fracture processes on a concrete dam. The video shows (in different views) the contourlines of the displacements as the deformation evolves.

This video of the Tarazona’s cathedral shows the evolution of damage when increasing the loads of structure gradually.


Typical problems that can be successfully tackled with GiD include most situations in solid and structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, heat transfer, geomechanics, industrial forming processes, among others, using finite elements, finite volumes, boundary elements, finite differences, iso-geometric analysis (IGA and IBRA), meshless or particle based numerical procedures.

Some practical examples of applications using GiD can be found in the following items.
