• Hydraulic and structural evaluation of rockfill dam behavior when exposed to throughflow and overtopping scenarios 

      Ravindra, Ganesh Hiriyanna Rao (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:227, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      Dams are vulnerable to extreme flood events in turn leading to accidental overtopping. This inparticular applies to rockfill dams comprised of pervious and erodible material. Obtaining better understanding of behavior of ...
    • Load measurements at riprap toe. 

      Opare, Kofi Ntow (Master thesis, 2018)
      Riprap is widely used as slope protection and when placed on the downstream slope of a rockfill dam, it provides erosion resistance under overflow conditions. For steep downstream slopes (S > 50%), initiation of riprap ...
