Managing Dams: Challenges in a time of change

Description

This book contains the proceedings of the 16th Biennial Conference of the British Dam Society, Managing dams: Challenges in a time of change, covering a wide range of topics of direct relevance to all who are involved in the engineering and management of dams and reservoirs.

A major challenge in the UK is to ensure that the nation’s stock of existing dams is properly managed to ensure both their safety and continued functionality. Recent improvements in the knowledge of factors influential in dam failure are presented, along with papers on remedial work for existing dams and how risk can be assessed and managed. There are several papers on the upgrade of spillways that were needed following risk analyses. New dams for water supply or hydroelectricity overseas and for flood alleviation purposes in the UK are also considered, with a range of dam types and sizes discussed.

Contents

  • Changes and challenges being faced by dam professionals
  • Emerging knowledge of new guidance and techniques
  • Monitoring and managing dams and reservoirs
  • Risk - assessments and actions taken to reduce risks
  • Spillway upgrades of existing dams
  • Construction of new dams in the UK and overseas
  • Remedial works to existing dams around the world
