Presentation on Reservoir and Dam Structures
This is a good presentation on reservoir and dam structures for civil engineering which tells about the storage capacity of reservoir, Area Elevation Curve, Elevation Capacity Curve, Cross Section of Dam, Hard - Shell Over Flow Dam, etc. A dam is a barrier that impounds water or underground streams. Reservoirs created by using dams no longer simplest suppress floods however additionally provide water for activities which includes irrigation, human consumption, business use, aquaculture, and navigability.

Based on structure and material used, dams are classified as easily created without materials, arch-gravity dams, embankment dams or masonry dams, with several subtypes.
If the dam height is less then 4m the slope is 1:0. The downstream slope is 1:0.7-0.8 in the case of dry–laid stone and greater than 1:1.2 in the case of rock fill. The upstream impervious facing's thickness is 0.3-0.5m for concrete, reinforced concrete and steel mesh gunite. A cushion layer is provided by 0.4m of cement rock blocks.
