By Miguel Ángel Toledo, Rafael Morán, Eugenio Oñate

Within the final many years, the know-how of dam defense has gone through significant developments. The expanding call for for safeguard in smooth society has created the necessity for most economical measures to guard serious infrastructure equivalent to dams. this example has led to the drafting of latest rules and technical manuals in international locations like Norway, Sweden, and the united states, between others. Dam Protections opposed to Overtopping and unintended Leakage comprises the newest advances in dam security, and a portfolio of purposes in consultant case experiences. the most issues comprise: - Failure of embankment and urban dams because of overtopping or unintended leakage - difficult protections for embankment dams (RCC, wedge-shaped blocks, strengthened concrete slabs) - tender protections for embankment dams (rockfill ft, articulated concrete blocks, plants disguise) - Concrete dam protections and extra concerns at once on the topic of dam protections The ebook comprises contributions from the first overseas Seminar on Dam Protections opposed to Overtopping and unintended Leakage (Madrid, Spain, 24-26 November 2014), and likewise a precis of the technical handbook "Overtopping defense for Dams", released by way of the USA Federal Emergency administration organisation (FEMA) in March 2014. Dam Protections opposed to Overtopping and unintended Leakage presents a entire precis of dam protections, protecting case stories and utilized study around the globe, and may be worthy to execs and teachers in Dam Engineering

Computational Techniques for Multiphase Flows

Combined or multiphase flows of solid/liquid or solid/gas are mostly present in many commercial fields, and their habit is advanced and tough to foretell in lots of situations. using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has emerged as a strong instrument for the knowledge of fluid mechanics in multiphase reactors, that are time-honored within the chemical, petroleum, mining, nutrition, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Hydraulic Engineering III

Hydraulic study is constructing past the borders of conventional civil engineering to satisfy expanding calls for in normal dangers, structural safeguard overview and in addition environmental learn. Hydraulic Engineering III includes sixty two technical papers from the third Technical convention on Hydraulic Engineering (CHE 2014, Hong Kong, 13-14 December 2014), together with the 2014 Structural and Civil Engineering Workshop (SCEW 2014) and the 4th Workshop on atmosphere and security Engineering (WESE 2014).

Example text

Vegetative cover is most viable as an overtopping protection method for small dams in humid climates that receive sufficient moisture to establish relatively dense, uniform turf grasses. Good maintenance of the grass cover is essential to achieve significant protective benefits. Grass needs to be cut relatively short on the downstream face of an embankment dam (between 5 to 15 cm) to facilitate visual inspections and to promote uniformity of growth. Vegetative cover is generally not suitable 15 for very steep embankments because of the difficulty of mowing and other maintenance required to achieve a uniform cover.

These systems have also been referred to as cellular concrete mats (CCM). There are many types of precast concrete blocks, each with its own geometry, useful application based upon hydraulic performance and erosion prevention, installation procedures, aesthetic value, and cost. Most ACBs are either cable-tied, interlocking, or overlapping. Most concrete block products are dry cast at a manufacturing plant near the site using a mold supplied by the manufacturer. Some are wet cast (using a higher water-cement ratio) if uniquely shaped.
