Dam Engineering - Design and Operation
Kód předmětu: 142DEE
|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.|
|The course covers wide range of aspects of dam engineering from conceptual designs to specific solutions which are explained in details.
Dam types; classification od dams; design consideration; concepts of reservoir schemes.
Data requirements (hydrology, geology, topography); project planning; non-technical considerations.
Foundation of dams (geotechnical aspects).
Embankment dams (earthfill; rockfill incl. ACFRD, CFRD; ACC etc.).
Concrete and masonry dams incl. RCC; CSG etc.;
Structural analysis (loading cases; types of analysis)
Filters and drains (design and construction)
Spillways (design parameters, safety during floods)
Bottom outlets and other appurtenant structures
Construction challenges; dam safety; communications - galleries, dam crests
Monitoring and surveillance systems
Operation and maintenance
Critical situations, accidents and dam failures - lessons learned
