Fractured Rock Hydraulics

1st Edition

Fernando Olavo Franciss
August 23, 2018

Uniquely devoted to hard and fractured rock hydraulics, this advanced-level introduction provides tools to solve practical engineering problems. Chapter I covers the fundamentals of fractured rock hydraulics under a tensor approach. Chapter II presents some key concepts about approximate solutions....

Numerical Modeling of AAR

1st Edition

Victor Saouma
August 16, 2018

This reference book presents the theory and methodology to conduct a finite element assessment of concrete structures subjected to chemically induced volumetric expansion in general and alkali aggregate reaction in particular. It is limited to models developed by the author, and focuses on how to...

Advances in Rock Dynamics and Applications

1st Edition

Yingxin Zhou, Jian Zhao
August 14, 2018

The study of rock dynamics is important because many rock mechanics and rock engineering problems involve dynamic loading ranging from earthquakes to vibrations and explosions. The subject deals with the distribution and propagation of loads, dynamic responses, and processes of rocks and...

Dam Surveillance Guide

1st Edition

CIGB ICOLD
August 10, 2018

Dams are part of human achievements that induce great benefits for society but also bear a potential risk to people, property and the natural environment. The risk of a dam rupture is extremely low and diffi cult to quantify accurately. The aim of ‘Dam surveillance’ (ICOLD Bulletin 158), is to help...

Flood Evaluation and Dam Safety

1st Edition

CIGB ICOLD
August 10, 2018

Hydrology and dams are two fields that are obviously closely related. Four bulletins have so far been published by the Committee: Selection of Design Flood – Current methods, Dams and Floods – Guidelines and cases histories, Role of Dams in Flood Mitigation – A review and Integrated Flood...

Reservoir Sediment Management

1st Edition

Sahnaz Tigrek, Tuce Aras
August 10, 2018

Siltation in reservoirs has become an important problem when dams are getting older and stop functioning when the sediment has accumulated to a certain extent. With proper sediment management techniques, negative effects of sediment can be avoided and reservoir life and performance can be...

The Indian Ocean Tsunami

1st Edition

Tad S. Murty, U. Aswathanarayana, Niru Nirupama
July 30, 2018

The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004 is considered to have been one of the worst natural disasters in history, affecting twelve countries, from Indonesia to Somalia. 175,000 people are believed to have lost their lives, almost 50,000 were registered as missing and 1.7 million people were...

2nd Edition

Ljubomir Tanchev
June 28, 2018

Dams and Appurtenant Hydraulic Structures, now in its second edition, provides a comprehensive and complete overview of all kinds of dams and appurtenant hydraulic structures throughout the world. The reader is guided through different aspects of dams and appurtenant hydraulic structures in 35...

Ballast Railroad Design: SMART-UOW Approach

1st Edition

Buddhima Indraratna, Trung Ngo
June 28, 2018

The rail network plays an essential role in transport infrastructure worldwide. A ballasted track is commonly used for several reasons, including economic considerations, load bearing capacity, rapid drainage and ease of maintenance. Given the ever-increasing demand for trains to carry heavier axle...
