Summary

Addressing the need for research into dam safety, this work covers such topics as foundation problems, fill dams, concrete and masonry dams, hydraulic and control structures, earthquake considerations, and instrumentation.
Natural causes like floods, rock slides, earthquakes, deterioration of foundations/structures etc. can cause dam failures. Study of actual failure of dams leads to better understanding of causes of failure and helps to work out suitable modifications in dam engineering including investigations, design, construction, operation and maintenance. As the knowledge is gained and the technology improved, the structures built in earlier times once considered safe may also require modifications.
Contents: Foundation problems, seepage & grounting; Innovations/Techniques for geological characterization of existing dam foundations; Fill dams; Concrete & masonry dams; Hydraulic & control structures; Earthquake considerations; Instrumentation;
