  1. Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs II

    Edited by Sébastien Erpicum, Frédéric Laugier, Michael Pfister, Michel Pirotton, Guy-Michel Cicero, Anton J. Schleiss

    Dam engineering is currently experiencing a strong revival of labyrinth oriented weirs. Labyrinth weirs, with a repetitive constructional character and an increased specific discharge capacity, are a very good technical-economical compromise. The concept of Piano Key Weir (PKW), with alveoli...

  2. Applied Hydrodynamics

    An Introduction

    By Hubert Chanson

    This textbook treats Hydro- and Fluid Dynamics, the engineering science dealing with forces and energies generated by fluids in motion, playing a vital role in everyday life. Practical examples include the flow motion in the kitchen sink, the exhaust fan above the stove, and the air conditioning...

  3. Large-Eddy Simulation in Hydraulics

    By Wolfgang Rodi, George Constantinescu, Thorsten Stoesser

    Series: IAHR Monographs

    Large-Eddy Simulation (LES), which is an advanced eddy-resolving method for calculating turbulent flows, is used increasingly in Computational Fluid Dynamics, also for solving hydraulics and environmental flow problems. The method has generally great potential and is particularly suited for...

  5. Framework for Dynamic Modelling of Urban Floods at Different Topographical Resolutions

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Solomon D. Seyoum

    Urban flood risks and their impacts are expected to increase as urban development in flood prone areas continues and rain intensity increases as a result of climate change while aging drainage infrastructures limit the drainage capacity in existing urban areas. Flood mitigation strategies are...

  10. Specialty Construction Techniques for Dam and Levee Remediation

    Edited by Donald A. Bruce

    Dam and levee remediation has become more prevalent since the start of the twenty-first century. Given the vastness and complexity of the infrastructures involved, keeping up with maintenance needs is very difficult. Major surges in repair are usually triggered by nature’s wake-up calls, such as...
