      Berg, Tom Erik (Master thesis, 2019)
      Vasskraft er ein av Norges byggesteinar og kraft trengs over heile landet. Bygging av vasskraftanlegga må prosjekterast nøye, og det vil være mange moment som må vurderast opp mot kvart enkelt tilfelle for finne den mest ...
    • Buttresses on Flat-Slab Dams - Planning of Shear Tests 

      Nymo, Andre' (Master thesis, 2016)
      The shear strength of a bonded concrete-rock interface below a concrete dam consists of two parts: friction from the self-weight of the dam and cohesion due to the glue in the cement paste binding the surfaces together. ...

    • Case Study of Dam Overtopping from Waves Generated by Landslides Impinging Perpendicular to a Reservoir’s Longitudinal Axis 

      Tessema, Netsanet Nigatu; Sigtryggsdottir, Fjola Gudrun; Lia, Leif; Jabir, Asie Kemal (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Landslide-generated impulse waves in dammed reservoirs run up the reservoir banks as well as the upstream dam slope. If large enough, the waves may overtop and even breach the dam and cause flooding of the downstream area ...
    • Comparison of the Svee and Thoma Stability Criteria for Mass Oscillations in Surge Tanks 

      Leknes, Eirik (Master thesis, 2016)
      This thesis discusses two different criteria for the stability of surge tanks in hydropower plants. In 1910, the first stability criterion was derived by Dieter Thoma. This criterion sets a minimum cross-sectional area for ...

    • Concrete Dams Constructed on Soil Materials 

      Bista, Dipen (Master thesis, 2015)
      Rock may not always be encountered at economical depth to have foundation dam on it. It is a typical situation in Nepal where several meters deep alluvium is expected before reaching competent rock. Several dams have been ...

    • DAM STORLIVATNET FLOMLØP - MODELLFORSØK FOR NYTT FLOMLØP 

      Gjerde, Baard Aasmund Utvik (Master thesis, 2017)
      Med grunnlag i revurdering og nye flomberegninger for dam Storlivatnet i Sauda, må flomavledningskapasiteten økes for å tilfredsstille krav fra NVE. I den forbindelse skal det bygges en labyrintterskel med sidekanal og ...
    • Dam Strandevatn - Modellforsøk av nytt flomløp 

      Trongkleiv, Hans Erik (Master thesis, 2018)
      Etter revurdering av flomløpet og nye flomberegninger utført av Multiconsult i 2012 for dam Strandevatn i Hol er det bestemt at flomavledningskapasiteten må økes for å tilfredsstille kravene i damsikkerhetsforskriften. Det ...
    • DEBRIS HANDLING AT SMALL HYDRO POWER INTAKES 

      Holmeset, Fredrik (Master thesis, 2013)
      In this study the handling of debris in small hydro power intakes is assessed by evaluating the concept of back flushing with a horizontally fixed trash rack. The concept of back flushing is to reverse the flow over the ...
