Arch dam is a very fascinating and eye catching structure; so what is an arch dam? as the name implies, arch dam is a curved obstruction from the upstream side singly spanned that mainly carries the load of the impounded water ...

In the near future, energy is converted as a luxury item and water is considered as the most vital item in the world due to reduction of water resources in most areas. In this condition, role of water science researchers ...

Recently while working on a dam project I go through a term called Roller Compacted Concrete. Mostly abbreviated as R.C.C but it must not be confused with Reinforced Cement Concrete. The word is enough to define itself; roller compacted concrete ...

In most of civil engineering projects from Housing to hydraulic related projects hydrology is mostly involved in combination with fluid mechanics. Water distribution networks are of significance importance from satisfaction of end user point of view. Bentley WaterCAD V8i SELECT ...

Traditionally, hydraulic modeling has been a reliable decision making tool for planning and design projects, but its use has been increasingly expanding to operations – from engineering support of operations to being directly leveraged by operators. Title of Event Water ...

Although hundreds of stilling basisns and energy-dissipating  devices have been designed in  conjunction  with  spillways,  outlet  works,  and  canal structures,  it  is  often  necessary  to  make  model studies  of  individual  structures  to  be  certain  that these will  operate  as anticipated. ...

The construction of dams ranks with the earliest and most fundamental of civil engineering activities. All great civilizations have been identified with the construction of storage reservoirs appropriate to their needs, in the earliest instances to satisfy irrigation demands arising ...

“He who Creates a potential danger is responsible for doing everything within human power to control it” The function of a spillway can be best illustrated as emanating from above well-known legal argument. Impounding large quantity of water behind a ...

Project Title Analysis of Different Hydraulic Parameters on the Structural Design of Dharma Nullah Bridge Taxila Project Abstract. The purpose of this project is to thoroughly study the various parameters affecting the hydraulic design of a bridge and studied various ...

To facilitate the simulations for networks of junctions, pipes, pumps, valves, and storage structures, calculating flow or water, pressures, tank elevations and concentrations of chemical species, water age and source tracing, United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has developed a ...
