Descripción
During recent years, the technology of dam protection has undergone major advancement. The increasing demand for safety in modern societies has created the need for cost-effective measures to protect critical infrastructure such as dams. This situation has resulted in the drafting of new regulations and technical manuals in countries like Norway, Sweden, and the USA, among others. The book contains a selection of the proceedings of the 1st International Seminar on Dam protections against Overtopping and Accidental Leakage held in Madrid (Spain) in 24-26 November 2014. It is also presented a summary of the technical manual ?Overtopping Protection for Dams?, published by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in March 2014. The latest advances on dam protections and a portfolio of applications in representative case studies were presented during the seminar. The topics of the technical sessions were the failure analysis of embankment dams; hard embankment dam protections (RCC, Wedge-Shaped Blocks, Reinforced Concrete Slabs...); soft embankment dam protections (Rockfill toes, Articulated Concrete Blocks, Vegetation Cover...); concrete dam protections and additional issues directly related to dam protections.
