Prerequisite
Knowledge of Fluid Mechanics, Hydrology and Water Resources engineering and Irrigation Engineering
Rationale
Develop understanding of principles of design of embankment dam, gravity dam, spillways and canal falls and regulation works.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Carry out stability analysis of embankment dam under sudden drawdown and steady seepage conditions.
2. Calculate normal stresses, principle stresses and shear stresses at heel and toe of dam and factor of safety of gravity dam against overturning, sliding and shear friction factor.
3. Design an ogee spillway and a chute spillway.
4. Suggest suitable energy dissipation measures
5. Design canal fall and regulation works

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU.
