DAM SAFETY – COMPARATIVE STUDY OF NORMATIVE DOCUMENTS
Keywords: hydrotechnical structures, design methods, structural reliability
The current Polish law regulations in the field of design of hydraulic structures are partially incomplete and
unclear. The paper discusses these flaws using the example of rules concerning structural safety of dams,
where references to invalid standards, unexplained terms and a variety of different design approaches can be
found, some of which are significantly outdated relative to the European Standards that are being introduced.
For the sake of comparison, some parts of the German Standard DIN 19700-11:2004-07 are quoted, where
a structured classification of operating and loading conditions is suggested, as well as a complete list of
loads and their combinations for structural analysis. Based on the safety factor approach, the document also
describes requirements for all design situations. Additionally, it creates the opportunity to introduce partial
safety factor approach dependent on experience of the designers.
