Dams engineering is the understanding and control from the huge forces and potential power of drinking water and mixture of technical experience from many disciplines, from foundation and seismic assessments to geotechnical, hydrological, hydraulic and structural design. It indicates dams engineering demands specialist abilities along with a commonsense approach.
Geotechnical Engineering of Dams book by Robin Fell includes complete details on theories and practical issues of Dams engineering including all elements of planning, site investigation, design and construction of embankment dams. This book is highly recommended for engineering students and practitioners who need complete technical input, design management and development guidance for new dams towards the planning of complex structural analyses of current dams.
Geotechnical Engineering of Dams book delivers a comprehensive text around the geotechnical and geological aspects on the investigations for and the design and construction of new dams. Additionally, significantly awareness is paid to the assessment and assessment of existing dams. This book focuses on elements related to geology, could be used for concrete gravity and arch dams. All phases of investigation, design and development of a dam are covered.
This Geotechnical Engineering of Dams book incorporates the collective expertise from the authors, therefore design approaches are presented in combination with their theoretical foundation, to allow the reader to create a appropriate understanding of the opportunities and limitations of a approach.
For its sensible, well-founded approach, this Geotechnical Engineering of Dams book can serve as a useful guide for expert dam engineers and engineering geologists and being a textbook for college students.
