Description / Abstract:

The most common failure modes of water retaining structures and their foundations, including embankment dams, dykes and levees, results from erosion. This book is a treatise that brings together some of the latest international research and advances on the experimental approaches to erosion in geomechanics. Emphasis is on physical processes, how well they can be studied at the laboratory, and how obtained findings can be applied to real levees and dams. This book brings together some of the latest international research and advances on the experimental approaches to erosion in geomechanics and its application to dams and levees.
