Synopsis:

The first part of the course focuses on general understanding and conceptual design of dams. Students will learn advantages and disadvantages of different dam types, how to evaluate potential dam profiles and how to implement basic design studies for different purposes. Second part of the course focuses on detail design of embankment and gravity dams, including necessary appurtenant structures such as spillways and bottom outlets and their hydromechanical equipment. Dam safety and operation are the main topic of the third part of the course. Students will be able to comprehend the modern surveillance systems designed for dam and understand the situations behind the results from the monitoring devices.
