In the last decades, the technology of dam protection has undergone major advancements. The increasing demand for safety in modern society has created the need for cost-effective measures to protect critical infrastructure such as dams. This situation has resulted in the drafting of new regulations and technical manuals in countries like Norway, Sweden, and the USA, among others. Dam Protections against Overtopping and Accidental Leakage includes the latest advances in dam protection, and a portfolio of applications in representative case studies. The main topics include: - Failure of embankment and concrete dams due to overtopping or accidental leakage - Hard protections for embankment dams (RCC, wedge-shaped blocks, reinforced concrete slabs) - Soft protections for embankment dams (rockfill toes, articulated concrete blocks, vegetation cover) - Concrete dam protections and additional issues directly related to dam protections The book includes contributions from the 1st International Seminar on Dam Protections against Overtopping and Accidental Leakage (Madrid, Spain, 24-26 November 2014), and also a summary of the technical manual "Overtopping Protection for Dams", published by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in March 2014. Dam Protections against Overtopping and Accidental Leakage provides a comprehensive summary of dam protections, covering case studies and applied research worldwide, and will be invaluable to professionals and academics in Dam Engineering.

In an increasingly urbanized world, water systems must be designed and operated according to innovative standards in terms of climate adaptation, resource efficiency, sustainability and resilience. This grand challenge triggers unprecedented questions for hydro-environment research and engineering. Shifts in paradigms are urgently needed in the way we view (circular) water systems, water as a renewable energy (production and storage), risk management of floods, storms, sea level rise and droughts, as well as their consequences on water quality, morphodynamics (e.g., reservoir sedimentation, scour, sustainability of deltas) and the environment. Addressing these issues requires a deep understanding of basic processes in fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, surface and groundwater flow, among others. Sustainable Hydraulics in the Era of Global Change: Advances in Water Engineering and Research unveils latest research achievements and innovations which were presented at the 4th European Congress of the International Association for Hydro-environment engineering and Research (IAHR), hold in Liege (Belgium). These new developments are based on state-of-the-art modelling technologies which are supported by the exponentially growing availability of data and computation power. Innovative synergies emerge between numerical modelling and experimental techniques, as well as field monitoring. Unique opportunities are created by multi-, inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches, bridging hydro-environment engineering and research with climate sciences, ecology, spatial planning, sociology. Sustainable Hydraulics in the Era of Global Change: Advances in Water Engineering and Research will serve as a reference for postgraduate, professionals and decision-makers involved in various water-related sectors, such as hydraulic engineering, fluvial hydraulics, coastal engineering, water resources management, and renewable energy.

Die Finite-Elemente-Methode wird in dieser Einführung in ihrer Komplexität auf eindimensionale Elemente heruntergebrochen. Somit bleibt die mathematische Beschreibung weitgehend einfach und überschaubar. Das Augenmerk liegt in jedem Kapitel auf der Erläuterung der Methode und deren Verständnis. Der Leser lernt, die Annahmen und Ableitungen bei verschiedenen physikalischen Problemstellungen in der Strukturmechanik zu verstehen und Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Methode der Finiten Elemente kritisch zu beurteilen. Diese Herangehensweise ermöglicht das methodische Verständnis wichtiger Themenbereiche, wie z.B. Plastizität oder Verbundwerkstoffe und gewährleistet einen einfachen Einstieg in weiterführende Anwendungsgebiete. Ausführliche durchgerechnete und kommentierte Beispiele und weiterführende Aufgaben mit Kurzlösung im Anhang unterstützen den Lernerfolg. In der zweiten Auflage dieses Lehrbuches wurden alle graphischen Darstellungen überarbeitet, die Wärmeleitung bei den Stabelementen ergänzt und Spezialelemente als neues Kapitel aufgenommen. Auch wurde das Prinzip der virtuellen Arbeiten zur Ableitung der Finite-Elemente-Hauptgleichung eingeführt.
