 The article Arch dams on Wikipedia projects:
English: An arch dam is a type of dam that is curved and commonly built with concrete. The arch dam is a structure that is designed to curve upstream so that the force of the water against it, known as hydrostatic pressure, presses against the arch, compressing and strengthening the structure as it pushes into its foundation or abutments. Arch-gravity dams are the types of dams that use combined engineering methods of arch dams and gravity dams.
