A Guide to the Reservoirs Act 1975 provides expert guidance on the application of the Reservoirs Act 1975, reflecting the current views and practices of the dam engineering profession.
This fully updated second edition for reservoirs located in England incorporates the latest amendments introduced through the Flood and Water Management Act 2010,
The second edition of the vital Prescribed Form of Record for a High-Risk Reservoir is fully updated to incorporate the latest amends to the Reservoirs Act 1975. The Prescribed Form of Record brings together key information about the operation of the reservoir that will be valuable in the event of any problem that may affect reservoir safety. It al
Hydraulics for Civil Engineers provides a thorough introduction to the principles of hydraulics and fluid mechanics. Combining core theories with the need for sustainable solutions, the book covers all the fundamental areas in hydraulics, including pressure in liquids, real flow in pipes, turbines and pumps, hydrology of surface water drainage, coa
This special issue of Civil Engineering, containing nine papers, explores the resilience for a number of different types of infrastructures, geographical locations and perspectives - all with a view to helping improve serviceability levels and expectations, with occurrences of lowered-performance experiences reduced still further.
This uniquely comprehensive guide for engineers and scientists demonstrates the feasibility of an integrated approach that combines resilient infrastructure with adaptive flood risk management. The book offers practical guidance on managing existing flood defences and designing and planning new ones. Key legislation is discussed together with insig

The practical application of geomorphological science now forms a regular part of any project involving flood protection, fisheries, conservation, recreation, environmental protection and river restoration. The responsibilities now placed upon organisations by the EU Water Framework Directive to assess river morphology will ensure that the uptake o
Latest essential information on reservoir safety from the heart of the water management profession The new title from Thomas Telford contains the proceedings from the 15th Conference of the British Dam Society. Ensuring Reservoir Safety into the Future discusses key topics and correct events including the state of the UK reservoir management and le
Explanations of equations and introduction to computer analysis. This book starts with an explanation of the phenomenon of pressure transients and how they may arise. It then gives an analysis of the constraints on the magnitude of transient pressures and the need for surge alleviation measures. Equations describing transient motion in pipelines ar
