This book discusses recent developments in dam engineering, covering theoretical and practical aspects. The chapters provide detailed descriptions of the types, surveys and investigations, layouts, design, thermal stresses, and foundation of dams. The differences between various theories/methods of analysis used in the design and their practical application and limitations are clarified.
The book focuses on earth fills and landfills and stresses the importance of foundation treatment. Failure of embankment dams is discussed mainly in the planning and construction stages of the dam. The environmental impact of dams is treated with references to river diversions and reservoir sedimentation. The book is written as a reference book for professional engineers and is also suitable for postgraduate courses.
