Nonlinear Hydrodynamic Pressures on Arch Dam Faces
A finite difference method was used to calculate the nonlinear hydrodynamic pressures on the rigid arch dam faces. The arbitrary reservoir shapes were transformed to a regular cubic by...

An Improved Design of Fishways Under High Variation of Headwater
For the purpose of mitigating environmental impact, it is necessary to build fish passing facilities for fish migration when a dam is constructed on a river. But when the headwater variation...

1993 Mississippi Record Stages and Levee Failures
Record-setting stages, flooding duration, and multiple levee failures are distinguishing features of the Mississippi River 1993 flood. The peak stages reached at stations along the Illinois...

Bed Load Prediction in Steep Mountain Rivers
The characteristics of the stream channel morphologies in a very steep mountain ravine are explained by the data obtained through the longterm field observation. The bed load transportation...

Management of Sediments on the Red River Waterway Project
The Red River is a large alluvial river system with the lower 280 miles currently being developed for shallow draft navigation. The navigation project entails construction of five locks...

Prediction of Accretion Below Muhuri Closure Dam in Bangladesh
An equation for prediction of siltation below a closure dam in the coastal area of Bangladesh has been developed using a diffusion equation of vertical transport of sediment. Applicability...

Alternatives for Overtopping Protection of Dams
Prepared by the Task Committee on Overtopping Protection of the Hydraulics Division of ASCE. This report summarizes the results of an inventory and...

Detecting Dam Failures
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission guidelines say that unattended hydroelectric dams must be monitored against failure around the clock. Design and installation of failure monitoring...

Risk-Based Decision Making in Water Resources VI
This proceedings, Risk-Based Decision Making in Water Resources VI, contains edited papers presented at the sixth Engineering Foundation Conference...

A Deep Soil Mix Cutoff Wall at Lockington Dam, Ohio

Repair of Abrasion/Erosion Damage to Vallecito Dam with Silica Fume Concrete

DSM Saves the Dam
The Miami Conservancy District built five flood control dams after the catastrophic flood of 1913 in Dayton, Ohio. Lockington Dam was one of these five hydraulic fill structures. The Ohio...

Dynamic Compaction to Remediate Liquefiable Embankment Foundation Soils

The Mechanics of Cracking in Embankment Dams

In-Situ Measurements of Dynamic Soil Properties and Liquefaction Resistances of Gravelly Soils at Keenleyside Dam

Bearing Capacity of Soils
Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 7 This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers engineering manual...

Influence of a Sand Layer on Headcut Advance
The presence of an erodible material layer in the soil profile has been observed to influence headcut movement in earth emergency spillways. Large-scale flume tests were conducted to examine...

Plain flooding: near field and far field simulations
The paper deals with the problems met in the attempt of simulating the plain submersion produced by a levee breaking in the inertia dominated region (near field), scaling with the typical...

Wanapum Dam Embankment Settlement Study
This paper discusses the long term vertical movements of a zoned earth embankment. Vertical movement of the Wanapum Dam embankment has been monitored since its completion in 1964. The...

New Methods for Modelling Dam-Break Wave
Recent developments in numerical analysis for hyperbolic equations have led to new methods which solve shallow water equations including complementary equations for hydraulic jumps. An...
