  1. 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...

  4. Dams and Reservoirs under Changing Challenges

    Edited by Anton J. Schleiss, Robert M. Boes

    In the past, boundary conditions in the building of dams have changed, as technological developments have been influential on dam planning, construction, operation and maintenance processes. It is ICOLD’s mission to not only consider these developments but also adequately deal with environmental...

  5. 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...

  6. Urban Flood Management

    By Chris Zevenbergen, Adrian Cashman, Niki Evelpidou, Erik Pasche, Stephen Garvin, Richard Ashley

    Along with windstorms, floods are the most common and widespread of all natural disasters. Although they can often be predicted, they cause loss of life, damage and destruction, as many urban communities are located near coasts and rivers. In terms of victims, floods are responsible for more than...

  9. Hydraulic Modelling – An Introduction

    Principles, Methods and Applications

    By Pavel Novak, Vincent Guinot, Alan Jeffrey, Dominic E. Reeve

    Modelling forms a vital part of all engineering design, yet many hydraulic engineers are not fully aware of the assumptions they make. These assumptions can have important consequences when choosing the best model to inform design decisions. Considering the advantages and limitations of both...

  10. Modelling for Coastal Hydraulics and Engineering

    By K. W. Chau

    Mechanistic models are often employed to simulate processes in coastal environments. However, these predictive tools are highly specialized, involve certain assumptions and limitations, and can be manipulated only by experienced engineers who have a thorough understanding of the underlying...
