Authors of Geotechnical Engineering of Dams PDF
Robin Fell is an Emeritus Professor of Civil Engineering on the College of New South Wales and in addition works as a peer assessment marketing consultant.
He has 48 years of expertise in geotechnical engineering of dams, landslides, and civil and mining initiatives in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, North, and Central America, and Asia.
He has labored on over 100 dams worldwide and has been concerned in all points of planning, web site investigation, design and development of embankment and concrete gravity dams.
Patrick MacGregor is a Consulting Engineering Geologist with greater than 50 years of expertise within the evaluation of geological constraints for main civil engineering initiatives in a quantity of international locations.
He has been concerned within the dam investigation, design, and development and significantly labored on hydroelectric developments in any respect levels from inception to operation.
David Stapledon spent a few years on the investigation of giant dam development websites in varied international locations. He was a Professor of Engineering Geology on the College of South Australia (1964–1993) and labored as a Guide in Engineering Geology, contributing to main dam initiatives in Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.
He has greater than 50 years of expertise and was awarded the John Jaeger Memorial Medal for Contributions to Geomechanics in 1995.
Graeme Bell has labored in dam engineering since 1962. His function has various from offering the complete technical enter, design administration and development recommendation for brand spanking new dams to the preparation of complicated structural analyses of present dams.
From 1979, he has acted as an unbiased reviewer on many dam initiatives, primarily in Australia, but additionally in a number of abroad areas.
Mark Foster has 20 years of expertise in dam engineering and geotechnical engineering. This has concerned all kinds of initiatives together with dam security evaluations, design of dam improve initiatives and dam security danger assessments for embankment and concrete dams.
He has a specific curiosity within the evaluation of piping and inside erosion of embankment dams which was the subject of his doctoral analysis research on the College of New South Wales.

Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering of Dams eBook
OUTLINE OF THE BOOK
The e book units out to current a state of follow of the geotechnical engineering of embankment dams and their foundations and the geotechnical engineering of the foundations of concrete dams.
It assumes that the reader is educated in Civil Engineering or Engineering Geology, with information of soil and rock mechanics. There may be an emphasis on the evaluation of present dams, in addition to the investigation, design, and development of new dams.
We have now got down to give the background to design strategies, in addition to the strategies themselves, so the reader can develop a correct understanding of them. The e book is essentially written about giant dams, which ICOLD (1974) outline as:
Giant Dam: A dam which is greater than 15 meters in top (measured from the bottom level within the normal foundations to the crest of the dam), or any dam between 10 meters and 15 meters in top which meets one of the next situations:
- the crest size isn’t lower than 500 meters
- the capability of the reservoir fashioned by the dam isn’t lower than a million cubic meters
- the utmost flood discharge handled by the dam isn’t lower than 2000 cubic meters per second
- the dam is of uncommon design
