  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. An approach to medium-term coastal morphological modelling

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Giles Lesser

    This thesis presents the implementation of fully three-dimensional sediment transport and morphological updating formulations within a proven three-dimensional hydrodynamic flow solver. The thesis briefly discusses the formulations used to model both suspended and bed-load transport of non-cohesive...

  9. Fuzzy Logic and Hydrological Modeling

    By Zekai Sen

    The hydrological sciences typically present grey or fuzzy information, making them quite messy and a choice challenge for fuzzy logic application. Providing readers with the first book to cover fuzzy logic modeling as it relates to water science, the author takes an approach that incorporates...
