The development of water resources is a key element in the socio-economic development of many regions in the world. Water availability and rainfall are unequally distributed both in space and time, so dams play a vital role, there being few viable alternatives for storing water

The present state of the art of dam engineering has been ronmental, and political factors, which, though important, attained by a continuous search for new ideas and methods are covered in other publications. while incorporating the lessons of the past. In the last 20 The rapid progress in recent times has resulted from the years particularly there have been major innovations, due combined efforts of engineers and associated scientists, as largely to a concerted effort to blend the best of theory and exemplified by the authorities who have contributed to this practice. Accompanying these achievements, there has been book.

Sediment Dynamics upon Dam Removal by Athanasios N. Papanicolaou
English | 30 May 2011 | ISBN: 0784411360 | 192 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

With the growing concern over adverse environmental impacts of dams on ecosystems and fish populations, the number of dam removals is rapidly increasing. Dams alter ecology, block fish passage, increase downstream scour, and displace residents, and dam removal is now a common solution.

Dam and Levee Safety and Community Resilience: A Vision for Future Practice

Dam and Levee Safety and Community Resilience: A Vision for Future Practice
Committee on Integrating Dam and Levee Safety and Community Resilience; Committee on Geological and Geotechnical Engineering; Board on Earth Sciences and Resources; Division on Earth and Life Studies; National Research Council
NAS Press | 2012 | ISBN: 0309256143 9780309256148 | 173 pages | PDF | 6 MB

This book explains that fundamental shifts in safety culture will be necessary to integrate the concepts of resilience into dam and levee safety programs.

Collaboration between dam and levee safety professionals at all levels, persons and property owners at direct risk, members of the wider economy, and the social and environmental networks in a community would allow all stakeholders to understand risks, shared needs, and opportunities, and make more informed decisions related to dam and levee infrastructure and community resilience.

Soil Engineering Testing, Design, and Remediation
Fu Hua Chen | CRC | 1999-09-28 | ISBN: 0849322944 | Pages: 304 | PDF | 2.8 MB

In the last forty years, at least fifty books have been written on the subject of soil mechanics, most of them textbooks. Only a few touch on practical applications. Soil Engineering: Testing, Design, and Remediation supplies the information needed to fill the gap between textbook learning and practical know-how.When engineers deal with major projects, such as the Teton Dam or the Leaning Tower of Pisa, they need high-tech solutions. More often than not, however, they deal with the foundations for warehouses, schools, medium-rise buildings, and residential structures, projects that need low-tech solutions. Ninety percent of the time consulting engineers don't require mathematical treatment or computer analysis, they require experience.Soil engineering problems cannot be resolved with textbook information

Like most ducks, Quax loves swimming. Unfortunately for Quax, an unruly gang of beaver baddies insists on building their dams upstream, reducing his best swimming pond to a crusty mud hole. Determined to swim again, Quax has constructed a dam-busting catapult to smash the beaver dams and restore his peaceful pond. Click letters to form words and give Quax the ammo he needs to demolish the dams. Featuring stunning artwork, whimsical characters, unique power-ups, and more, Dam Beavers is a blast word game fun for the whole family.
