Impacts of climate change on floods and urban flooding management.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – Synthesis of the AR5. Impact of the climate change on floods. Urban flooding, risks and vulnerability

Mekong dying: China wants more than just electricity from dams

For China, upstream Mekong River dams are more than electricity generators; they can deal with water shortages and are a political pressure tool…

Damming the Mekong Basin to environmental hell

Major dam construction projects have become a favorite pastime of some autocratic governments, with China leading the way.

The advent of Geomembrane Faced Earth and Rock Dams (GFRD)

Upstream facings to waterproof earth and rock dams offer several advantages. Among the many materials used for decades, modern polymers (Geomembranes) proved to possess substantial advantages and were successfully applied to dams of increasing height. Deformations are inevitable and relevant in high rockfills

The Global Earthquake Model (GEM)

The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Global Seismic Hazard Map (version 2018.1) depicts the geographic distribution of the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) with a 10% probability of being exceeded in 50 years, computed for reference rock conditions (shear wave velocity, VS30, of 760-800 m/s)

Water resources in Vietnam: current status and challenges

Water Resources in Vietnam: - Tropical region - Annual rainfall from 1500-2000 mm - Rainy season: April - October (varies from place to place and time to time)

Diagnosis of Songloulou Dam: Innovative stress measurement on concrete abutment

The Songloulou dam is built on the Sanaga River in Cameroon. It has a drainage area of 130,000 km, an interannual modulus of 2000 m3/s and the following flood flow characteristics: Q10 = 7400 m3/s, Q100= 8000 m3/s, Q1000 = 8890 m3/s and Q10000 = 9830 m3/s

Anthropogenic stresses on the world’s big rivers

The world’s big rivers and their floodplains were central to development of civilization and are now home to c. 2.7 billion people. They are economically vital whilst also constituting some of the most diverse habitats on Earth

Seismic design and performance criteria for large dams and methods of dynamic analysis

The seismic design criteria for large dams and safety-critical elements, such as spillways and low level outlets that must function after a strong earthquake, are discussed. The ground motion parameters of the Safety Evaluation Earthquake (SEE) and Operating Basis Earthquake (OBE) are given
