Canal and River Levées covers the basic rules of canal embankments and levées calculation and layout. Canal embankments and levées are among the world's oldest hydroengineering
structures. This publication is split into seven chapters that target fixing the issues of defending regulate levees, which often referred to as anti-flood or anti-inundation dykes.

The starting bankruptcy surveys the final difficulties of dam layout and development. the following chapters care for the elemental features, selection, experimental tools, and calculations of seepage, in addition to the soundness calculations and embankment payment. those issues are through discussions of the neighborhood stipulations and calls for on the subject of the development of embankments and their a number of concrete buildings. different chapters discover the necessities of energy- and irrigation-canal sealing and the subsoil safeguard of levees. The final bankruptcy seems into the measurements, common specifications, and statement of dams and levees.

This ebook is meant essentially for civil engineering designers.
