  1. Coastal Engineering

    Processes, Theory and Design Practice, 2nd Edition

    By Dominic Reeve, Andrew Chadwick, Christopher Fleming

    Historically, much harm has been done by well-meaning coastal engineering attempts, which seemed like good ideas on paper but which failed to allow for practical issues. For this reason, it is vital that theories and models are well grounded in practice. This second edition brings the models and...

  2. Risk Analysis, Dam Safety, Dam Security and Critical Infrastructure Management

    Edited by Ignacio Escuder-Bueno, Enrique Matheu, Luis Altarejos-García, Jesica T. Castillo-Rodríguez

    As there has been a continued increase in the demand for higher levels of safety, security and reliability for all critical infrastructures, the design, construction, and operation of dams should be integrated as part of a comprehensive risk management framework that can effectively address natural...

  3. Reservoir Sediment Management

    By Sahnaz Tigrek, Tuce Aras

    Siltation in reservoirs has become an important problem when dams are getting older and stop functioning when the sediment has accumulated to a certain extent. With proper sediment management techniques, negative effects of sediment can be avoided and reservoir life and performance can be...

  7. Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs

    Edited by Sébastien Erpicum, Frédéric Laugier, Jean-Louis Boillat, Michel Pirotton, Bernard Reverchon, Anton J. Schleiss

    Labyrinth spillways are almost as old as dam engineering. In spite of the fact that they appear as a very good technical-economical compromise, only 0.1% of large dams are equipped with such weirs. The main reason for this is that traditional labyrinth weirs usually cannot be installed on top of...
