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 ...
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. ...
