Practically all types; shapes of dams can be analysed today with the help of computers; finite elements. The author of this unique draws on more than forty years of experience to presents simple approximate methods of analysing embankment, gravity; arch dams for design studies, preliminary designs, estimates of quantities, checking computational methods; teaching. Emphasis is placed on understanding the mechanical behaviour of the dam rather than the computational details. He includes 26 fully-worked examples of dams in Europe, India; the USA.
