Editorial Reviews

The point of studying holes in dams is not to make them but to plan and design dam disaster work. Compiling information scattered through technical and scientific literature, explores such topics as the types and causes of dam failures, the hydraulics of floods and erosion, major recorded dam breaches, dimensional and dimensionless analytical solutions using empirical models, and mathematical models. Also compares and evaluates the various models. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
