He has been involved in dam investigation, design and construction, and particularly worked on hydroelectric developments at all stages from inception to operation. Fromhe has acted as an geotdchnical reviewer on many dam projects, mainly in Australia, but also in several overseas locations. I am sure this book will be an unavoidable professional reference and guide in the libraries of all dam and geotechnical engineers. The revision of the previous edition is timely and up to date.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Eleven years after the publication of the first edition of the excellent book Geotechnical Engineering of Dams, the geotechnical and dam engineering community can enjoy geotechnifal and analyzing the second edition, completely revised, updated, enlarged and enriched. The assessment of existing dams, including the analysis of risks posed by those dams, is gsotechnical discussed.
Zhang marked it as to-read Jul 12, Sabrina rated it it was ok Sams 21, He has worked on over dams worldwide and has been involved in all aspects of planning, site investigation, design and construction of embankment dams. Graeme Bell has been a Consulting Dam Engineer since Monitoring and Surveillance of Embankment Dams. The Bookshelf application offers access: The emphasis is on embankment dams, but much of the text, particularly those parts related to geology, can be used for concrete gravity and arch dams.
Concrete Gravity Dams and their Foundations Enbineering methods are presented in combination with their theoretical basis, to enable the reader to develop a proper understanding of the possibilities and limitations of a method.
Books by Robin Fell. Trivia About Geotechnical Engi Ov, I strongly recommend the book to advanced university students as a textbook, as well as a source of ideas for further research works. This book provides a comprehensive text on the geotechnical and geological aspects of the investigations for and the design and construction of new dams and the review and assessment of existing dams. The student resources previously accessed via GarlandScience. This wholly revised and significantly expanded 2nd edition includes a lengthy new appendix on the assessment of the likelihood of failure of dams by internal erosion and piping.

Geotechnical Engineering of Dams
All phases of investigation, design and construction are covered. Description of this Book This book provides a comprehensive text on the geotechnical and geological aspects of the investigations for and the design and construction of new dams and the review and assessment of existing dams.
I cannot also avoid mentioning chapter 12 — Design of embankment dams to withstand earthquakes — in which an up-to-date review and analysis of this sensitive aspect of embankment dam design is given, still under intensive development. This has involved a wide variety of projects including dam safety reviews, design of dam upgrade projects and dam safety risk assessments for embankment and concrete dams.
