Reservoirs in a Changing World: Proceedings of the 12th Conference of the BDS Held at Trinity College, Dublin, 4-8 September 2002
This volume is the Proceedings from the 12th International Conference organised by the British Dam Society in September 2002. Reservoir safety is the key theme with many papers on the performance and rehabilitation of dams. The evolution of reservoirs in Ireland and the development of safety legislation in the UK are described. Risk assessment features in a number of papers as a method of assessing the safety of reservoirs. Several papers address the seismic assessment of dams and structures. The performance of upstream asphaltic membranes, in the UK and Ireland, is described along with reference to major remedial works that have been undertaken.
