Practically all types and shapes of dams can be analysed today with the help of computers and finite elements. The author of this unique draws on more than forty years of experience to presents simple approximate methods of analysing embankment, gravity and arch dams for design studies, preliminary designs, estimates of quantities, checking computational methods and teaching.
Emphasis is placed on understanding the mechanical behaviour of the dam rather than the computational details. He includes 26 fully-worked examples of dams in Europe, India and the USA.
