Smart Dams and Reservoirs contains the proceedings of the 20th Biennial Conference of the British Dam Society that took place from 13-15th September 2018.

Many new techniques and methods are now available for investigating, designing, constructing and monitoring dams. The papers in this book give examples of how new ideas have been used in practice to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of all aspects of the work that is necessary to ensure the safety of dams and reservoirs. The heritage value of older dams is being increasingly recognised, and this book aims to show how ensuring their safety can be carried out without adversely affecting the historic and landscape features of these sites.

The papers are grouped into six chapters covering:
  • planning and investigatory techniques
  • working with our heritage
  • new approaches to design
  • innovative approaches in during dam construction
  • sensing and monitoring techniques for the twenty-first century
  • emergency preparedness.
The papers in this book will be of interest not only to engineers and others directly involved in the management of reservoirs, but also to designers and suppliers of new techniques and remote monitoring and surveillance equipment.
