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.

Requirements:

Previous study - basic knowledge in hydraulics, hydrology, geology and construction materials and construction technique.

Syllabus of lectures:

1 - Types of dams; concepts of reservoir schemes.

2 - Data requirements (hydrology, geology, topography); project planning; non-technical aspects.

3 - Foundation of dams (geotechnical aspects).

4 - Dams (earthfill, rockfill dams including - ACFRD, CFRD; ACC etc.).

5 - Concrete and masonry dams including RCC; CSG etc.;

6 - Static calculations (load conditions; types of calculations).

7 - Filters and drains (design and construction).

8 - Spillways (design parameters, flood safety)

9 - Bottom outlets and other dam accessory

10 - Construction problems; dam safety; communications - galleries, dam crests

11 - Monitoring and surveillance systems

12 - Operation and maintenance

13 - Critical situations, accidents and dam failures - lessons learned

Syllabus of tutorials:

Examples with calculations of solutions and designs of dam elements resulting in basic drawings and calculations for an earth and concrete gravity dam in the specified profile

Study Objective:

To introduce students the conceptual planning, design, construction and operation of dams. The course provides in depth view to dam engineering field and students aquire necessary skills to design, assess and operate dams.
