Piano Key Weir (PKW) Spillway

This is the Chapter 6, concerning the PKW, in the next ICOLD bulletin (publication in 2016-2017): ‘TECHNICAL ADVANCEMENTS IN SPILLWAY DESIGN’ ‘Progress and Innovations from 1985 to 2015’

Associating Concrete fuse plugs with PKWeirs

Associating PKWeirs and fuse plugs allows benefiting from the specific advantages of the two devices: those of the PKWeirs for the usual floods and those of the fuse plugs for the exceptional floods

An initiative to improve dam and downstream community safety in Vietnam

The Dam and Downstream Community Safety Initiative (DDCSI) is a three year pilot project with the objective of improving dam safety in Viet Nam, by reducing loss of life and economic damage resulting from flooding related to dam discharges

Concrete face rockfill dams in highly seismic regions

The slopes of CFRDs in highly seismic areas should be rather flat as the crest deformations of the dam will be governed by the slopes and crest width as well as concrete elements on the crest.

Feed-Back on Five Years of Industrialization of Erosion Tests in Europe

Erosion mechanisms have long been known to be the main cause of breaches in earthen hydraulic structures, like embankment dams and/or dykes (Foster et al., 2000). Yet, the way the level of risk to this pathology was up to recently assessed was, in practise, limited to standard identifications

Possibilities of Balance Island for salt intrusion reduction in Mekong delta

Study needs: Needs for salt water reduction. Location, size, shape of islands for the location of river mouths. Measures for design and construction. Effects of island (economic, environmental, social…)
