>The Three Gorges Dam is a steel-concrete gravity dam. The water is held back by the innate mass of the individual dam sections. As a result, damage to an individual section should not affect other parts of the dam. Zhang Boting, deputy secretary-general of China Society for Hydropower Engineering, suggested that concrete gravity dams such as the Three Gorges Dam are resistant to nuclear strikes.

Is this true? Is TGD resistant to nukes?

    A nuclear bomb, not even a large one, just a 15kt nuclear bomb hits the reservoir section and lands in the water, it'll send shockwaves that hit like a tsunami and break several sections of the wall simultaneously

    The dam that the Brits blew up in WW2 was also a gravity dam made of steel and concrete. If damaging one portion of the dam wouldn't cause catastrophic failure, what about two? Or three? Or 100 cruise missiles simply eroding away the top of it until spillover accomplishes the rest of the destruction?

                Or rather, the question becomes do you think the US govenrment would pay a few billion to commit national suicide by forcing an immediate use-it-or-lose-it dilemma on all other nuclear powers, which will nigh-inevitably result in at least one of them launching an immediate first strike before your brilliant pebbles meme can go online.

                Anon, this is why you arent a world power. You are a shit poster on the internet. Let me help.

                Do you know why books like 1984, Yukikaze, or even the absurdist takes of the Simpsons tv show at times predict the future? Because they follow logical acceleration. A simple thought exercise of "if this than that, if this than that, which is countered by this which requires that, which eventually ends us up at this end state." now when you factor in known technology, and anticipated technology, as well as what resources are available, you now have a theory of constraints.

                Not only your own constraints, but your opposition's constraints.

                So, we have dystopian AI not because it was forecasted by the illuminati, or that we exist in a state of absolute cruelty because of sadism, but because macro level survivalism of states demands it.

                We will have or already have space-based weaponry, and the rest is just the bleating of the sheep on both sides, and pageantry to convince the world that the war wasn't already concluded.

                Do you know why the US doesn't rule the earth ala Pax Britonia? Because the model is annoying and is easier done with self governance and DeFacto subservience to strategic demands.

                Do not mistake my statement for assuming the average American benefits from this in any way; we do not. we are must slaves as the average Chinese citizen. But make no mistake, the US is the symbol of authority for good reason. If China or any nation had the means to do a decapitation strike and survive, they would have. They do not. Everything else is just pageantry and theater. Good will, risk, and altruism do not exist at the strategic level.

                What they believe is inherently counter-factual so they're obsessed with finding some deus ex machina that will let them win.

                They can't hope to win on the merits of their side but they have made their strength into a religious like belief so they perform ever more contorted reasoning to show why not only it's possible for them to win but by some deserved miracle, it'd certain that they will.

                Less stop exporting, more change your entire agriculture. Most of agriculture in the US has little human nutritional value as it's producing either sugar or animal feed for meat. Neither is very space efficient.

                But by cutting meat production and sugar production in half (and butchering the excess lifestock) a LOT of land would be freed up/made unnecessary.

                As of now when you look at agriculture by nutritional value for human, California ranks among the top as it produces a lot of fruit and vegetables rather than just corn.

          This. Even if the damn doesn't collapse the spillover would probably cause pretty nasty flooding.

      Blow up the lock gate with even with a drone. Water floods out of reservoir at very high rate. Dam rebounds inwards at very fast rate and collapses on itself.
      Many papers and studies have been done about it. The reservoir emptying out at rapid rates via the lock would collapse it. It's got all this pressure pushing it one way and down. Imagine it all shifting very fast the other and the reservoir bottom shifting straight up. It high lows itself.

The meandering routes the rivers took through the valleys, the marshes and woods and such all served to slow down the flow. When the river flooded, it wasn't a cataclysmic event like in the later periods, it was just all part of a natural cycle that the people adjusted to. As more land along the length of the river and its tributaries was deforested and/or cultivated into farmland, the rate at which floodwaters could flow into the main stream grew, and the megafloods (1931, 1935, 1954) that the river is now infamous for became possible.

        Given the region's importance, the political will to relocate settlements and industry never materialized, and the can was instead kicked down the road by building dams and reservoirs to "manage" the river. Thus it remains today.

        My money btw is on a landslide causing an overtopping of the dam. The landscape surrouding the river is fast eroding and climate change means that intense periods of rainfall that trigger liquefaction of soil in the mountainside will happen more frequently.

        getting rekt by floods is a Chinese thing since prehistory. one of the legendary emperors, the founder of the legendary first dynasty, got his fame for managing the great flood

        >During the reign of Emperor Yao, the Chinese heartland was frequently plagued by floods that prevented further economic and social development.[25] Yu's father, Gun, was tasked with devising a system to control the flooding. He spent more than nine years building a series of dikes and dams along the riverbanks, but all of this was ineffective, despite (or because of) the great number and size of these dikes and the use of a special self-expanding soil. As an adult, Yu continued his father's work and made a careful study of the river systems in an attempt to learn why his father's great efforts had failed.

        >He spent more than nine years building a series of dikes and dams along the riverbanks, but all of this was ineffective
        >Instead of directly damming the rivers' flow, Yu made a system of irrigation canals which relieved floodwater into fields, as well as spending great effort dredging the riverbeds.

      Half of china is desert ( and growing) much is polluted. It cann't feed itself and ir relies on fuel imports. It has the loosers position on the world map and never made the imperial age because of that and its recent prosperity was entirely granted to it by the USA (now ungranted) in a well meaning experiment to drag it out of tyrannical communism to democratic civilization (which failed). hina is currently dealing with teh implosion of histories greatest bubble and greatest property bubble representing 1.3rd or more of its GDP and due to demographic again will never be relevant again.It never really was militarily and right up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine was considered considerably less militarily capable than Russia. That's still true. considerably less militarily capable than Russia. capable of bothering the Philippines and bullshit for internal propaganda like aircraft carriers and planes that are simply useless against the USA both in quantity and quality. The truth is the actual Chinese economy is now in reality smaller than the EUs again and will continue to shrink. The very best thing hina could do right now is disavow Putin, recognize Taiwanese independence, set a roadmap for Hong Kong independence and beg the west for forgiveness for the immense frick up it made of covid.

    All that's needed is a few hits on the spillways (to create uneven surfaces and encourage cavitation) then on the spillway gates in the rainy season.

    The choice is then to either accept that the spillway will be fricked and potentially the dam structure itself. Or to hold the water back to allow repairs and risk overtopping.

    Japan & Taiwan both possess missiles capable of striking anywhere on the mainland, and will be equipped with nuclear payloads given the decades of 'energy cooperation'. What Moscow & Beijing are doing - and have always been doing and planning - is the worst kept secret in the world, and only tolerated to circle the world-historic drain for so long as it is an expedient funding modality that gets Us into space.

      US would nuke the entire South America, Canada etc.

      They didn't flood cities moron.

      The 1938 yellow river flood worked and it blocked Japan from Zhengzhou for 6 years and permanently prevented Japan from attacking Shaanxi province by turning eastern Henan into impassable mud where tanks and artillery couldn't go.

      The floods is the yellow river affected the north China plain because it's flat and that's where crops are grown.

      The yellow river flood was caused by breaching dikes which held back already natural floods

      The three gorges dam is entirely different, its built on the Yangtze river (Chang Jiang) which doesn't naturally flood and downstream was never a natural floodplain before.

      Japan and South Korea will be wiped out in a nuclear war with China while China will still exist.

      China had the number of warheads, missiles, silos and launchers to blanked all of South Korea and Japan.

      Japan and South Korea don't have the required number of fissile material, silos or launchers to wipe out China.

      China can wipe out all of South Korea and Japan's missile silos AND cities in a first strike while Japan and South Korea can only strike 5% of China's land and population.

    it's kind of irrelevant because gravity dams are still susceptible to overtopping, undermining and rolling, additionally, if a portion of it does fail, it still drains the reservoir, which is catastrophic. if it is significantly overtopped, it is likely to fail completely or at least over such an area that it doesn't much matter if it didnt all fail.

        I honestly agree. China, at the very minimum, needs America out of the picture before it can make any move against Taiwan. And the only two ways that is happening is

        A. NATO and Russia glass each other in a general nuclear exchange, assuming China doesn't get glassed too (unlikely).

        B. America collapses into civil war

        Both are possible, the latter is arguably inevitable, but both aren't really happening in the foreseeable future either.

            Taiwan is like Switzerland surrounded by a 100 kilometer moat.
            Not only that, Taiwan has modern anti-ship missiles and an extensive network of underground tunnels and bunkers. It will be like Iwo Jima with China using all of its rockets only to find out that they only killed a few thousand civilians.

            Again morons who have no idea what they are talking about.

            98% of Taiwan's population lives in the flat western plains, in cities towns with absolutely no natural defences or bunkers.

            2% of Taiwan's population (Mountain Aboriginals) live in the eastern mountains.

            Taiwan's only defence is the Taiwan strait and navy, not its mountains.

            Japan, South Korea and Taiwan all ban private gun ownership. Only mountain Aboriginals in Taiwan are allowed to use hand made muskets for hunting. 98% of Taiwan's population are disarmed and live in the plains.

            The pro-Taiwan independence party are fiercely against private gun ownership.

            This isn't Ukraine which has ultranationalist paramilitaries like Azov. In Taiwan, the pro Taiwan independence people arr the nerds who play league of legends and try to make themselves sick to avoid conscription.

As a result, damage to an individual section should not affect other parts of the dam. Zhang Boting, deputy secretary-general of China Society for Hydropower Engineering, suggested that concrete gravity dams such as the Three Gorges Dam are resistant to nuclear strikes.

            Is this true? Is TGD resistant to nukes?

            The CCP has also explicitly promised nuclear counter value strikes in retaliation to a deliberate bursting of TG (and presumably any of those "way funnier targets" upstream that these threads also eventually mention), so it's already a non-starter.

    Most would need a couple of nukes each to be wiped.

    That would be enough to strip them of their position of Hegemon but it would still be a nation more populated than Russia, with a territory choke full of natural ressources, along with a air fleet, navy and nuclear stockpile largely untouched.

          I guess the UK will be some lend-lease forgiveness or something, maybe balancing the books for destroyed materiel or something to do with the base and ship swaps.

    is there really even a point to breaking it in a war?
    wont it just kill a bunch of civvies, or is there like vital infrastructure downstream?

      Both. Breaking it would hit major cities and ravage farmlands guaranteeing famine.

    I'd believe it. Only because the Chinese government is so autistic about that specific dam, and constantly points to it as one of their greatest achievements. You can kinda tell it cost a frickton of money and they're coping a bit by making it this big toursity thing
    It's funny, because nobody cares, they're just there to see the great wall

      Chinese tourism is nearly all focused on the domestic market. Domestic tourism is massive in China, international tourism is miniscule by comparison and arguably, more trouble than its worth for the CCP.

      I've no doubt there are tourist facilities at the TGD but it's probably targeted just at locals and more about justifying/excusing/spinning public opinion about the dam.
      The CCP does not cope about spending money, Chinese culture practically demands huge flagship projects of national importance. Chinese Communist culture certainly demands it.

      They've come a long way, the first big project of the party after consolidating power was a 71km irrigation canal that took them five years and was basically just the kind of aqueduct Romans built hundreds of in no time at all.

    >As a result, damage to an individual section should not affect other parts of the dam
    what is the point? if you destroy a section the water will flood from there. who gives a shit if other parts are still up

    >Zhang Boting, deputy secretary-general of China Society for Hydropower Engineering, suggested that concrete gravity dams such as the Three Gorges Dam are resistant to nuclear strikes.
    I don't think they really believe this. The Chinks have been explicit that any attack on the 3GD will be treated as a nuclear attack.

    >The KMT would have force relocated people and built the dam if it won the war as well.
    I often wonder how China's population would have been if KMT won, whether CKS would have killed more or less people or more accurately, whether he'd have done it deliberately in white-terror purges or accidentally in famines as Mao did.

    Mao was actually pretty civilised by Chinese standards, relatively few of his enemies were murdered or executed, outside of battle in the civil war anyway, most were imprisoned and "re-educated" which compared to Chinese feudalism is positively humane.
    I always find it interesting that Mao killed out of incompetence instead of malice, presumably he'd have preferred to avoid the famines etc if he was able. CKS killed deliberately and was extremely brutal, killing families of enemies sometimes.

    It leads into the whole question of whether KMT would have democratised if they ruled mainland China and didn't have western pressure or rely on US aid that could be leveraged to force reforms.

    Doesn't really matter if it is. It's not resistant to the dozens of upstream dams getting blown and releasing all their reservoirs in a single flood which is far more powerful than the dam is rated to withstand.

    The whole idea about a military strike on Three Gorges Dam is laughable, because let’s be serious, who would ever accept to take responsibility for such a war crime, a crime against humanity? The person in question would be remembered as the worst killer in human history. Who would be willing to press the button?
