Abstract
The concept of evolving a block tectonic model for a high concrete gravity dam located in a dynamically evolving Himalayan terrain has been attempted for the first time in the Indian context. Precise delineation of the lithounits, demarcation and ordering of discontinuities and mega shear zones at the site and demarcation of tectonic blocks form the basis of model. The physical and geo-mechanical characters of rock masses in each of the tectonic block is defined and their likely response during and after the construction of the structures over them is assessed beforehand and necessary design modifications are suggested. It has immensely helped in anticipating/understanding the problems at the foundations of the structures and those on the abutment slopes. The necessary corrective measures were suggested in time
