      This book contains procedures, standards, and instructions for use in the design of small dams. Many of the theoretical concepts presented are applicable to large as well as small structures. This is the best book for 'general dam engineering' with numerous examples of the content applied to actual dams. THE USBR MANUAL ON SMALL DAMS The reference text for dam construction is the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) Manual on the design of small dams (), and applicable to small dams constructed in the United States.

    This is the case with Design and Construction of Small Earth Dams. To obtain a copy of Design and Construction of Small Earth Dams for personal study, fill out the following mandatory information form and click 'Request Copy'. The form will be sent to the officer in charge of the Soil And Health Library, Steve Solomon. Book Description. Small Dams: Planning, Construction and Maintenance has been written to provide a practical approach and guide to determining catchment yield and the amount of water required in a dam, advising on selecting and working with engineers and contractors, as well as outlining the cause of dam failures and how to remedy problems quickly. It also covers .

    Description: Dams have been used to control water for thousands of years, with the oldest known dam being a small earthen structure in present-day Jordan dating to c BCE. Since then, cultures throughout the world have practiced the art of dam-building and the technology has evolved in myriad ways. The structural failure of concrete dams, and the undermining of earth dams by erosion due to over-topping are complex problems that go well beyond the scope of this book. However, as shown in Fig. , there are certain simple steps that may be taken when a more realistic timing of the water release from a gradually failing dam is desired.
