Handbook on avalanche dam design

Handbook on deflection and catching dam design:
Different types of protection dams and their basic principles of operation are presented. Insight gained from recent laboratory and full-scale experiments is presented and discussed. This knowledge is used to analyse the merits and shortcomings of newly developed dimensioning criteria and compare them critically to the traditional methods. Based on this, recommendations are given for the procedure to follow in assessing the suitability of different dam types in a specific situation and in the overall design of a dam. Several examples illustrate the main points.
