Dams and overtopping : a polyhedral relationship
Contributor:Toledo, M. Á.
This paper discusses the different elements playing a role in causes and consequences of dam overtopping: the river basin, the reservoir, the dam and the spillway, the riverbed and the territory downstream of the reservoir. ...
Using an innovative revetment for overtopping protection of levees and dams
Contributor:Cooley, B. H.; Thorton, C.
This paper focuses on the tufted-geosynthetic revetment system (TGRS), and its performance for levee and dam overtopping. The TGRS is an innovative technology developed to be a permanent revetment system which resists ...
Cost-effective numerical modeling for evaluation of overtopping protection systems
Contributor:Dababneh, Ahmed "Jemie" A.; Schwartz, Mark A.; Tastan, Erdem Onur; Edwards, Tom
Case studies that focus on exceedance of the design flood event and the resulting overtopping conditions may be used to provide cost-effective analysis of overtopping protection systems. For this case study, conditions of ...
