By P. Peter

Canal and River Levées covers the elemental rules of canal embankments and levées calculation and layout. Canal embankments and levées are among the world's oldest hydroengineering
structures. This e-book is split into seven chapters that target fixing the issues of shielding keep an eye on levees, which often referred to as anti-flood or anti-inundation dykes.

The beginning bankruptcy surveys the final difficulties of dam layout and development. the following chapters take care of the elemental features, choice, experimental tools, and calculations of seepage, in addition to the soundness calculations and embankment cost. those issues are through discussions of the neighborhood stipulations and calls for on the subject of the development of embankments and their numerous concrete buildings. different chapters discover the necessities of energy- and irrigation-canal sealing and the subsoil safeguard of levees. The final bankruptcy appears to be like into the measurements, basic necessities, and remark of dams and levees.

This publication is meant essentially for civil engineering designers.
